Option Chains

The option chains present a scaled-down version of the full-featured OptionTrader. The Option Chains are designed to fit into the smaller Mosaic workspace while still providing relevant option chain data and trading capability. Use the Strategy Builder to create option combos from within the Option Chain window.

To open the Option Chains
