Introduction

Stolo’s Option Chain Platform is a robust tool for traders, providing real-time data on stock options. It offers live tick-by-tick information, support and resistance levels, trend analysis, and advanced filtering options. 

Basic Terms

a) LTP (Last Traded Price): The most recent price at which an option was traded.

b) Strike Price: The price at which both buyers and sellers of an options contract agree to execute an options contract

c) In the Money (ITM): An option whose strike price has already been surpassed by the current stock price. A call option is ITM if the strike price of the call is less than the underlying asset price. A put option is OTM if the put’s strike price is more than the underlying asset price.

d) Out of the Money(OTM): An option that has no intrinsic value, only extrinsic value. A call option is OTM if the strike price of the call is more than the underlying asset price. A put option is OTM if the put’s strike price is less than the underlying asset price.

e) At the Money (ATM): A scenario where the target price of a call or put option is identical to the underlying asset’s current market price

f) OI (Open Interest): The total number of outstanding option contracts.

g) Volume: The total number of option contracts traded.

h) Option Greeks: Measures like Delta, Theta, Vega, and Gamma, provide insights into option price sensitivity to different factors.

i) Support & Resistance: Price levels at which an asset tends to find buying (support) or selling (resistance) interest.

j) PCR (Put Call Ratio): A metric that compares the total open interest of put options to call options, indicating market sentiment.

k) Implied Volatility (IV): IV refers to the expected volatility around how low or high an underlying asset might fall or rise
