Unlocking the Secrets of Historical Options Data

Options data is a powerful tool that investors use to gain valuable insight into the stock market. Through analysis and leveraging of historical options data, investors gain a better understanding of price movements, potential risks, and potential returns. When used correctly, options data can provide critical information when attempting to make informed and lucrative decisions.

What is Options Data?

Options data is a collection of market level information that includes contracts, bids and offers, and single trade data. It enables investors to identify trends that have been indicative of changes and other events that move the markets in the past. Through this data, investors can identify patterns and clues that could indicate opportunities for future profit.

How to Analyze Historical Options Data

In order to gain the most insightful information from historical options data, investors must accurately assess and construct the data collected and be aware of the market environment to make educated decisions. When constructing data, the investor should pay attention to the strike prices, expiration dates, and premium prices for each option. This will allow them to analyze and identify trends, and determine whether a stock may be under or overvalued and positioned for a potential gain or loss.

Strip Straddle Options Strategy

A strip straddle is a popular options strategy that enables traders to collect income from non-directional movements in a particular stock. To execute the strategy, investors must buy and sell various puts and calls on the same underlying asset for the same expiration time. This strategy can be attractive to those looking to offset expenses associated with holding the assets or for those that choose not to go long or short with the underlying asset.

Using MarketXls to Utilize Options Data

Analyzing historical options data can be a complex and manual process. Fortunately, MarketXLS gives investors the ability to access options data, while simultaneously combined with other forms of research, such as options chains, market sentiments, and Stock Screener.
