Platform for FOP selling with delta and IV

Hi all,

I'm currently using TWS with Interactive brokers and mainly selling options on future.
Since IB requires higher margin than the exchanges, I consider to switch to another platform.

But I find it quite difficult to find a good platform for option selling. The most missed feature is
delta and implied volatility.

So I wanted to ask, what platform do you use and why?

For a low cost solution, you might consider finding a broker/FCM that offers CGQ Q-Trader. I believe it costs $40/mo plus 25 cents per contract per side. To my knowledge, you won't get position management, stress test and margin what-if capabilities like those available through IB (primarily via IB Risk Navigator) but those might not be important to you.

Ah ok, I will have a look.

You are with RJO? Are you using the Q-Trader yourself?
On the RJO site is only CGQ Integrated Client and CGQ Trader listet, and CGQ Q-Trader seem to be
yet another tool by CQG?

It would be really enough for me to have delta and IV added. I could calculate it with another tool, but to find
the right option to sell, it's easier, if it is listet direct in the option chain.
But 40$ per month is in the acceptable range.

What did u finally decide

Also at least manual back testing like in TOS or IB risk navigator would be good

What platform is everyone using?

IB vs cqg qtrader are neck and neck in what if tools

Spread execution and rolling seems more complicated in qtrader
Would love to discuss with anyone using qtrader for options spreads

Guys, check out Option Workshop. It runs off of CQG continuum or an IB feed. (15-25$/mo. depending on features)
Right now it's free software - just renew the demo every month. (We have a planned price starting at 50$/mo)
It's got 'What if' scenarios for mapping IV and other scenarios. PM me for more details

We have calculated Greeks, including IV, an Options Chain, and a Vol Curve Manager in the TT platform. https://library.tradingtechnologies.com/trade/view-markets-options.html

Hello Patrick,

are you able to calculate the required margin for selling an option within the TT platform?

Best regards,

Dominik
