How to Choose the Options to Display In An Option Chain
You can not only view an option chain for any optionable stock symbol, but you can customize the Option Chain window to contain the data you most want to see. Steps to customizing the option chain are below.
Expiration Dates: click the expiration date drop down menu and choose
- Show all Expirations (all option expirations available on the stock for up to the next 750 days)
- Show all w/o weekly's (all standard option expirations available on the stock for up to the next 750 days, excluding weekly option expirations)
- A specific option expiration date
Use the up spinner for more strike prices; the down spinner for less. When sorted by Symbol (which sorts by expiration date) the number of strikes selected will be grouped under that expiration date.
