What about Bloomberg ?

You can trade whatever you like with Bloomberg. And you get a cool keyboard.

BB starts @ $1800 if I recall propely, and you keep on adding (tradebook is separate)... great market data, great analytics, but not something I have access to anymore... there is also Reuters Xtra which is similar to BB.. but overall, now you are heading into HF/AM land more than anything else since the infra/support costs would pile up faster and so does the account balance requirements to play in the sandbox.. for our purposes, it might as well be out of reach..

I trade options for my trend trading with equities, as they help me limit my risk while amplifying my profits at the same time. I know some might trade options intraday, which can be profitable as well. I use technical analysis to guess where things are going using 1440 minute bars and I tend to then do then look at the greeks and formulate the strategy I want to follow based on what I see.

I wanted to know what other follow options traders might be using... thus far I have used, but not really settled on any given one, the following tools.. which I have purchased or have access to or have an interest on..

OptionGear http://www.optiongear.com/
OptionNetExplorer OptionNETExplorer
OptionVue Option Trading solutions from OptionVue
OptionsOracle SamoaSky - Stock Options Analysis Tools (Strategies & Volatility Analysis, Strategies Screener)
Visual Options Analyzer Visual Options Analyzer - Options Analysis Software
TS OptionStation TradeStation Securities - Options Analytics

I would like to opinions of others as to the available tools and what other tools you have found of interest and of use to aid on the option analysis... I am mainly using TOS tools right now, since they are the fastest and I can "backtest" strategies with it as well.

Always appreciate your input. I trade options and also looking for decent plateform. Used Optionvue 6, TWS option trader, visual trader (did not work for me since I trade futures not stocks)... Have not tried option gear or optionnet.

I was hoping to spend little money. However, optionvue and option gear range from $900 to $1695.

Found Onyx Optionvue 5 on internet between $100 to $150 but not clear what is Onyx optionvue? if it is the same optionvue I demo before?

If it is? then it could be a good buy. It analyzes the risk and can try what-if scenarios. IV charts, PL graphs in 3 to 5 lines.

Thanks for starting this thread.

I have mentioned Option Net Explorer more than once, here are a few pics... this is what lead me to start investigating it and why I keep in touch with the developer waiting for it to be made public. It has most of the features that I have duplicated with spreadsheets.

Whats up with this service? Looks like their website still isnt set up? It has been a while since the OP.


I found Peter Hoadleys excel add in recently. I tried the trial, but it force closes constantly! It is a POS. I am looking for other options in this space. For what I do, I don't need anything too crazy. I could make my own sheets in excel but I really would prefer not to.


I was sold on Hedley's cheap and (it looked like to me) easy to use and feature-intensive for the money add-in until I downloaded the trial. He also only allows 3 email correspondences with him before he cuts you off from questions. That would be fine with me if his trial wasn't the buggiest thing I have ever had the displeasure of downloading.



Any advice is appreciated. This thread threw out a lot of ideas but no feedback.

CQG Trader and Q Trader from CQG.

QST uses the CQG API. This should be a consideration as well.

Thank you,
