Options Expiry Cycles

Discussion in 'Options' started by SuperBanda, Oct 16, 2006.

  1. I am doing CC with options expiring from 3 to 6 months away. In order to spread my risk, I am willing to distribute my portfolio on various expiry dates.

    Where I can get the list of all the equity options with a given expiry date? E.G. all the options with an expiration in February?

    Many thanks in advance for the help.
  2. I recently asked the OCC for a complete list of expiration cycles (of all optionable stocks).

    Much to my surprise there isn't such a list, except for leaps where, as they informed me, they put them on manually:


    I guess anyone subscribed to a bulk options data vendor could crunch some numbers to compile such a list, but I myself never got to do this.

    Perhaps someone else can help you find such a list.
