The Options module is a highly interactive tool to view options data for stocks and futures with option availability.
In the Options Chain
The next drop-down along the top provides you with the ability to view all strikes, or limit to 2, 4, 6 or 12. Note that if, for example, you were to select 6 strikes to view you will see 6 strikes above and 6 strikes below the current price of the underlying asset. The strike price box opens up and you can leave it as is or edit it to your liking.
You can view all option expiration dates at once, some of them, only one expiration date, or even no dates at any time. To view all expiration dates click the "Select All" button to the far right. All available expiration dates will list below.
To clear or remove all expiration dates click "Select None" at the far right. To pick out one specific date click on that date. You will see it is the only one along the top that is highlighted. You can then select other dates and add them to your list by clicking on them, or even remove various expiration dates by clicking on them again while highlighted; you will see they are no longer highlighted and no longer listed in the options chain below.
The Options module also provides the ability to view the most active options for any particular underlying asset. Simply click in the view drop-down box and switch to "Most Active." This will display a list sorted according to the calls or puts with the highest volume, descending accordingly.
The options chain provides you with the ability to pick and choose which data or columns you would like to view. Right-click the column header and add or remove columns accordingly by selecting them from the various options. As seen in the image directly above we provide many different data fields to choose from, such as basic quote data, open interest, implied volatility, and greeks.
Once you have chosen which columns you'd like to view you can further customize this by moving the columns to your personal preference. Left-click on a column, holding the button down, and drag to the desired location. Let go of the left-click button and the column will drop into place.
The options chain also allows users to view both calls and puts, only calls or only puts. To the left and right of the Strike column
