New Feature: Fixed header and 1st row
We wanted to share a quick update: We have deployed a fixed header and first column feature. Now, when you scroll the table, the first row and column will be set so you'll always be able to see the labels. This is very useful for mobile usage and scans with a lot of data.

New post: Stock Score Analysis
We've released a new blog post analyzing three stocks according to their stock score. In this post, you'll learn more about the stock score and some of the data points that go into creating it, and how to use it when analyzing trades.

Multi-column sorting

We are happy to announce that we just deployed a quick update with a new multi-sorting feature. This feature will allow you to sort by two columns and find optimal trades faster.
It is used best when you first sort by stock data (such as IV rank, stock score, total options volume, etc.) and then by option data (such as maximum return, min risk, best profit ratio, etc.).

Some use cases:

  1. Sort results by maximum stock score and then the maximum annual return.
  2. Sort by minimum RSI (or Stochastic) and then by maximum profit in the scenario engine set to one standard deviation up.
  3. Sort by top IV Percentile and then by the maximum expected value.
  4. And more.

New blog post: Backtesting IV part 2 - Testing RV percentile vs RV
In the previous article in the series, we tested how the IV Rank (Percentile) affects the IV. This time we tested how the Realized Volatility (RV) percentile affects the future realized volatility. Hint: also mean-reverting.

Read in our blog post for the complete description.

New blog post: Back-testing IV rank vs Future IV
We've just published a new blog post where we test future IV change after various IV rank threshold. (Spoiler alert: IV is mean-reverting, so after a high IV percentile, you'll see a decrease in IV and vise-versa).

This is something you can use in Samurai right now, using the IV rank filter.
New data provider for Earnings
We are happy to announce that we implemented another data provider for companies' earnings events. This will help us provide better estimates for future earnings events.
Added bid/ask Level for all strategies

We finished testing a new feature for the October version and decided to release it early 😀.

We have added the ability to control the option prices used in the calculations of the strategies. You can use a conservative price (buy on ask, sell on bid) or mid-price of the options. All the calculations, such as return, breakeven point, the trade tab, max loss, profit, etc. will be controlled by this setting. This will allow you to find trades with more realistic profiles and consider the market's different price fluctuations.
