Intraday Option Statistics

Functionality: The Intraday Statistics Chart offers a comprehensive summary based on the classification of expiration dates and trading directions.

In each cell, the top number (displayed in green) represents the call amount data, while the bottom number (displayed in red) represents the put amount data. The color shade is indicative of the premium amount, with the shading intensifying in proportion to the premium value. For a detailed view of option specifics, simply hover your mouse cursor over the respective amount, as illustrated in the chart below:

Order Count: This metric represents the count of option flow within the selected time range, not to be confused with the total number of options traded.

Contract Size: It denotes the aggregate sum of contracts associated with all option flow.

Premium: The Premium figure corresponds to the cumulative total of premiums associated with the option flow.

Filters can be effectively employed to narrow down and display intraday summaries tailored to specific stocks or stock types.

Attention Flow

Functionality: Attention Flow for Rapid Detection of Active Options Trades

The Attention Flow service helps swiftly identifying active options trades throughout the trading day. It operates by sending notifications when multiple option flows occur for the same stock on the same day. This service provides critical data, including the total count of option flows, the number of contracts involved, and the total premium values.

Take the first row of the chart above as an illustrative example: At 16:14 for IWM, there were 21 call option flows, amounting to 20,000 contracts traded, with a premium totaling $2.6 million. Additionally, there were 40 put option flows, resulting in 70,000 contracts traded, and a premium amounting to $11 million. The highlighting within the chart signifies the option that triggered a high-powered alert. In the first row, the high-powered alert is activated by IWM's put option (Put). This feature aids users in swiftly identifying significant trading activities and potential market-moving events.


As demonstrated in the example above, the Attention Flow is activated multiple times by call options for the same stock, such as EXPE.

Filters can be effectively employed to display filtered stock-specific Attention Flow results or refine the results by stock types.

Daily Snapshot

Functionality: Daily Snapshot Service for Comprehensive Option Flow Summaries

Daily Snapshot service is designed to provide a summary of the number and magnitude of option flows for the day. It presents the most active stocks, ranked from highest to lowest based on their option flow activities.

Taking the first line of the chart above as an example: Stock TSLA holds the distinction of having the largest call option order for the day, featuring 610 option flows, a total of 81,000 options traded, and a premium value of $584 million.

Filters can be employed to refine the daily results, focusing on specific stocks or stock types that align with your preferences.

When exploring the chart, hover your mouse cursor over the numbered rows to reveal specific details for each entry:

  • Order Count: Indicates the number of option flows within the selected time range (not to be confused with the total number of options traded).

Our dashboard offers a comprehensive analysis of the put and call option ratios for the current trading day. This analysis is presented in four distinct cells:

1. Premium-Based Ratio: The first cell computes the put to call option ratio based on the premium amount for the current day. It calculates this ratio as the premium of put options divided by the premium of call options.

2. Contract-Based Ratio: In the second cell, the ratio is computed based on the number of contracts traded for the day. This ratio is calculated as the number of put option contracts divided by the number of call option contracts.

3. Total Call Option Flow Premiums: The third cell provides the sum of all premium amounts associated with call option flows for the day.

4. Total Put Option Flow Premiums: The fourth cell displays the cumulative premium value of put option flows for the trading day.

This dashboard empowers you with critical insights into the dynamics between put and call options, offering both premium and contract-based perspectives. It aids in making informed decisions and assessing market sentiment throughout the trading day.
