Re: Futures Options #2/Lee/Trades
In Response To: Futures Options/Lee/Trades ()

Hi Trades,

What I failed to mention was:

Because you can't chart the futures options [at least I cannot] AND the options chain has so many entries (including all of the intermediate non-integer) strikes it is really tough to keep track (a sense of) what is changing over time.

I think possibly reducing the data/creating something like a derivative of the Open Interest, value over time so that what you are looking at is "what is changing" day by day things might make more sense.

A lot of the data clearly seems to be "old hat" from spreads/hedges established some time ago and as you mentioned seems to have no bearing on what is currently happening other than cloud the picture.

Thanks for your thoughts !!!
