Derivative Quotes Map

A derivative quotes map works much the same way as a traded options watch list except the layout is different and there is extra information.

In a derivative quotes map window 'in the money' and 'out of the money' are highlighted with different colour backgrounds.


You can view the implied volatility for each option in table format.


You can also view an implied volatility chart (volatility smile) containing one or several months of calls and puts. For each month the historical volatility will appear as a line near the bottom of the chart.


To view a derivative quotes map...

Step 1: Click the derivative quotes map icon on the toolbar.

Step 2: Choose the underlying stock from the drop down menu in the Current Window Toolbar.
Step 3: Press enter on your keyboard or click the apply icon (green tick).


Step 4: Swap between the 'derivative quotes map', 'IV table' and 'IV chart' using the tabs at the bottom of the window.
