We prepared a major update for Option Workshop. Many new features have been added to help our users trade efficiently. In the new version, you can change the position’s opening price, set the commission for the exchange/underlying assets/option series/futures, display the IV curves for several pricing models simultaneously, etc.
After the release we have received some good suggestions for program improvement. Thank you for your response. Thus, the development plan of Option Workshop in October/November: Show the open interest volume in the Option Desk. Display the theoretical price in the Order book. Add the ability to change the option type of the modeled position.
September is here and we have a whole new major update to talk about. There are several new features that have been added to Option Workshop to help our users trade as efficiently and effectively as possible. Without further ado, I’m going to talk about each of these feature, and what they allow.
There are different ways to add positions to a strategy in Option Workshop. The most convenient and quickest method is by dragging an instrument from the Option Desk’s table, and dropping it into the positions table. In this case a form with some pre-filled fields will open.
In Option Workshop most of the data is displayed in tabular form. For convenience the tables can be customized to your requirements. We’ve made two videos that demonstrate how to do it: The first video is about selecting which columns to display, specifying width and sorting order. The second video is about how to create presets,which are used to quickly switch between different table settings
A lot of things have been done in this update! The new version can already be downloaded from the website or through the update system.
