    Does anyone know of good option software that provides analysis, data and or an execution platform. I only know of Options Vue and I'm searching for a few more. Thanks.
  2. I use optionsxpress. When I first started it was very basic, but now they have added a lot of extra features. About the only thing they don't have that I would like are volatility skews and maybe some more advanced charting.

    What kind of options strategies do you all use?
  6. I like swing trading and credit spreads.

    Do you do put spreads or call spreads? Please give me an example of what you're doing so we can discuss your strategy.


  8. bear call spread ( sell the more expensive call ) if i'm looking for a dip and bull put spread ( sell the more expensive put ) if im looking for a rally. Front month options to take advantage of time decay.
  9. dotslashfuture,

    I use the same play. How long do you typically hold them? I find 3 days about optimal. I've had many turn to crap when I tried to expire them.

    How about post some actual examples of real trades, so we can discuss the strategy.
    Discussing some open spreads might benefit us all.
