Options: Price Tables & Terminology

by Dan Keen

The following is an excerpt from Dan Keen's Covered Call Writing: A Low Risk Cash Flow Money

The table below is called an option “class” listing; it is a group of calls or puts on the same stock. Each horizontal row is an option “series”, showing the prices for calls or puts for a particular option having the same strike price and expiration date. This listing is for our hypothetical XYZ Company. The group on the left is information on call options; put options are on the right.

Let’s examine the first row, Dec 10 (XYZ LB-E). The month and the strike price are indicated by “Dec 10”. Don’t be confused thinking “10” is a date – it is the strike price. The day of the month is not given, as it is always the third Friday of the month.

Next, the symbol “XYZ-LB-E” specifies the underlying stock, in this case the XYZ company, “L” is the month (December), and “B” is the strike price ($10). You can find the “L” symbol and the corresponding strike price “B” listed below in the following two tables.

The first three letters of the option symbol will not necessarily be the same as the ticker symbol for the underlying stock. Obviously, some stocks have more than three letters in their ticker symbol, such as those found on the NASDAQ exchange. Sometimes the letter “Q” is also used as an ending character when shortening symbols. For example, the ticker symbol for Staples is SPLS. The June $22.50 call option symbol is PLQFX.

The final letter “E” is not actually a part of the option symbol, but indicates the options exchange where that particular option is traded, such as the New York Stock Exchange, The American Stock Exchange, The Philadelphia Stock Exchange, and so on.

Other columns in a typical option class listing, as seen in the first table above, show the price of the last sale, the bid and ask prices, the volume, and the open interest (the number of option contracts currently held on that specific option).

Money Flow Index

by Adam Oliensis

The following is an excerpt from Adam Oliensis' Stock Chart Analysis & Dynamic Trading System

Money Flow indicators measure the flow of money into or out of a security, based on both volume and rising or falling prices. The particular version of Money Flow we will talk about here is normalized in a way that’s similar to how the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is normalized. Because it measures a specific look-back period (e.g. 14 days), it operates as a kind of volume-weighted momentum oscillator.

In order to make the Money Flow Index (MFI) calculation easier to understand, we have broken it into the following components, shown in the table below.

The “IF, THEN, ELSE” in the equation returns “data 1” if the test is true (non-zero) or “data 2” if the test is false (0). So, for instance, in the phrase, “IF C>=C[-1] THEN 0 ELSE 1” the ordinary English meaning would be, “If today’s close is greater than or equal to yesterday’s Close, then we’ll use “zero”, and otherwise we’ll use “one”. In the calculation of MFI, using this phrase self-selects whether today’s reading is part of NMF or PMF. The self-selection is done by virtue of using the result of the “IF, THEN, ELSE” as a multiplicand in the equation. If the result is “zero”, then the product of the equation is also “zero” and the appropriate NMF or PMF line remains unchanged.

MFI is used in much the same way as is RSI, in that we look for the MFI line to become overbought (oversold), and then we sell (buy) a cross down (up) out of the overbought (oversold) condition.

Looking at the chart below, you can see the MFI line is fairly lumpy. It does a good job of giving us an idea of whether the market is overbought or oversold, but its lumpiness makes it hard to measure precisely when you’re getting a good signal.

Weekly Market Line in the Sand

by Andy Chambers

The following is an excerpt from Andy Chambers' Weekly Market Line in the Sand

Every week Andy publishes his “Weekly Market Line in the Sand” newsletter. The following are trade updates from his most recent issue.

Mini DOW Futures Weekly: The trend is up. The bears have the momentum. The initial hurdle for the bears is seen at 19,607.

QQQ Daily: The trend is up. Tuesday’s big reversal suggests that the momentum is shifting to the bears. We want to exit the QQQ call.

On 9/18 we suggested buying the QQQ January 19th 2018 120 call. The buy price was 8.92. We want to exit the call at the market. The current bid/ask is 14.22/14.82.
