Give Yourself an Edge

Our powerful options analytics and trading package ranges from detailed quote windows to the ability to perform what-if analysis and execute User-Defined Strategies. The scope of the tools is enhanced by the choices available within the modules for analyzing the option strategies. Within each of these modules, we offer seven different options models for analyzing options and strategies. As always with CQG, you have a wide range of choices that enable you to tailor analytics to your specific needs.

Perform What-If Analysis

The Volatility Workshop allows you to adjust the characteristics of an options-implied volatility curve to appraise how those alterations affect the theoretical values of either an individual option or a portfolio of options. You can modify either the implied volatility for a single options series or the entire volatility curve.The three-dimensional Volatility Workshop offers the same analysis as the two-dimensional display with a more in-depth view of the interactions between the variables over time.
