Summary

ORATS will be launching a new Core Data release at BattleFin London, including constant maturity implieds, forward volatilities, and component weighted averages for US equity options, ETFs, and indexes. The ORATS Data API also provides hard to borrow implied rates, straddle priced expected earnings move, and more for options and stock trading.

Matt Amberson will be representing ORATS at BattleFin London on September 25th and 26th in the beautiful Rosewood Hotel. If you are attending, you can sign up for a one-on-one meeting. If you are in the London area and want to meet with Matt, contact us here.

We are announcing the launch of our new Core Data release in conjunction with the event.

 

New to this release are constant maturity IV readings at various delta levels, forward volatilities and component weighted averages. Forward volatility is a measure of the implied volatility over a period in the future extracted from IV at the beginning of that period and the end of that period. Flat forward volatility is a measure of the implied volatility over a period in the future using theoretical pricing relationships from IV at the beginning of that period and the end of that period. Comparing these two methods of calculating forward volatilities present a unique and powerful way to isolate outliers in the market.

ORATS covers all US equity options including stocks, ETFs, and indexes--over 4000 tickers back to 2007. Also included are component weighted averages for the major indexes and ETFs, over 30 more tickers listed here: ALL_C,DIA_C,DJX_C,GDX_C,IBB_C,IGN_C,ITB_C,IWM_C,IYR_C,KBE_C,KRE_C,MDY_C,NDX_C,NQX_C,OIH_C,QQQ_C,RUT_C,SMH_C,SPX_C,SPY_C,XBI_C,XHB_C,XLB_C,XLC_C,XLE_C,XLF_C,XLI_C,XLK_C,XLP_C,XLRE_C,XLU_C,XLV_C,XLY_C,XOP_C,XSP_C

Always perform your own due diligence and, as appropriate, make informed decisions with the help of a licensed financial professional.

Commissions, fees and other costs associated with investing or trading may vary from broker to broker. All investors and traders are advised to speak with their stock broker or investment adviser about these costs. Be aware that certain trades that may be profitable for some may not be profitable for others, after taking into account these costs. In certain markets, investors and traders may not always be able to buy or sell a position at the price discussed, and consequently not be able to take advantage of certain trades discussed herein.
