Deciding what trade to do is based on the data we have on a given option. But in the age of information, it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff and we often find ourselves unable to make a decision.
Our option scanner was designed to help you arrive at an educated (and customized) decision based on 100s filters (grouped in 6 categories) - with the sole purpose of finding the best trades for you, based on your personal preferences.
When this filter is applied the scan result will include only the companies that were defined in the filter. To add companies press on the filter value (“Any” by default) and enter the stock ticker symbol (not case sensitive) and approve. To add more than one symbol simply press the space bar or “;” or “,” between symbols.
In order to return and include all symbols: remove the filter or delete its content and approve it.
