How to Sort the Results Table
Option Samurai uses a multi-sort feature that sorts by two columns by default. This feature is very powerful and allows you to sort first by a stock parameter and then by an option parameter.
Some of my favorite use-cases for it includes:
- Sorting by a technical indicator (RSI, for example) and then by annualized return.
- Sorting by IV percentile and then by maximum profit ratio (to find the most expensive options with the best risk-return)
- Sorting by stock score and then by dividend yield on strike (allows me to sell puts on strong stocks with high dividend yield if I'm assigned.
- Sorting by analyst target price and then the scenario column.
- And many more.
How to sort
Sorting is very simple - Hover above the column header (click on mobile), and then you'll see the sorting menu:
- Sort this column only - Will sort the table only by this column. (one column sorting)
- Sort this column first - The results will be ranked by this column first, and the other column (has a number next to it) will be the second sort.
- Sort this column second - The results will be ranked by the column with the number 1 next to it. And then by the selected column.
- Don't sort this column - Cancels the selection.
Numbers and arrows next to the column headers
The numbers and arrows next to the column headers are visual indicators of the sorting. The number 1 indicates the primary sorting, and the number 2 indicates the secondary sort. The arrows indicate the ascending to descending order.
