The Options Analytics service uses daily updates and historical data to provide end-of-day analytics and reference data for U.S. and international exchange-listed options on equities, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), equity indexes, and futures.
This service can run test simulations of trading strategies, generate risk and regulatory reports on portfolios of options and underlying securities, and perform an in-depth analysis of options positions. Accounting firms can also use this service to their advantage, to help calculate the amount of dividend equivalent payment and delta test for the IRS Section 871(m).
