Options Trade Monitor

Filters for identifying trades

The Options Trade Monitor displays all trades for options instruments associated with the selected exchange and product family, many of which might not meet your trading interests. To help you find specific trades that match your trading needs, the Options Trade Monitor also supports the ability to create simple to complex filters that can reduce the number of trades shown in the widget. You can define widgets to find opportunities for trading options such as those selected products within the product family.

The filter dialog provides a graphical way to create the filtering logic, as shown in the following example.

Options Electronic Eye filter to find put options within a delta range and with buy or sell edge opporunities

  1. A filter group that uses two filter rules to match trades for GE2 or GE3 opions within the GE product family.
  2. A filter group that matches trades that have expire in ten days or less and that have an edge of at least 0.1.
  3. An AND filter logic that requires both filter groups to be true.

Using this filter reduces the list of trades to those that meet these filter requirements. The filter continues to monitor the incoming trades and adds them as they meet or no longer meet the filter requirements.
