Option Block Trades Screener

?

Screen and filter for large block option trades from a full list of actual trades for a specified date.

When analyzing a potential option investment, it is helpful to view how investors have actually traded recently. The Option Block Trades Screener allows you to evaluate market trading patterns as well as focus on a specific symbol (or sector) of interest. Use the filters to choose minimum Trade Quantity, Time of Day, Option Type, Exchange, or Trade Condition (which is explained at the bottom of the page).

Sort the table by clicking on the column header, ascending or descending. Reset all parameters to their defaults by clicking the "Clear" button at the top of the filters. Use the "Filter Symbol" box to narrow down on a particular symbol. More detailed option information on a specific symbol can be found by clicking on the Symbol link in the far-left column.
