Charles Schwab today announced improved options trading capabilities for active traders with several key upgrades to its trading platforms.

The firm's clients will now have enhanced charting and screening tools, reflecting Schwab's tradition of making market information more actionable, helping traders make better decisions in times of market volatility. These new features include:

  • Several New Charting Studies are being added to its trading platforms to provide more comprehensive options-specific technical data (Implied Volatility & Put/Call Ratio) to help traders identify trends and make better informed trading decisions.
  • New Options Screening Capabilities are being added to the existing Customizable Options Screener including covered call, delta, and implied volatility screening.
  • New Historical Option Price Charts and Strategy Profit/Loss Charts are being added to help traders evaluate price trends as well as the potential profit or loss on new option trades.
  • Multi-leg Trading Enhancements provide advanced traders with an improved trading experience on their multi-leg orders including, No Bid and Good Till Canceled multi-leg orders. These enhancements will make it easier for clients placing these trades.

A recent Schwab survey of more than 600 active traders found that 44 percent of respondents trade options regularly. "We continue to see growth in options trading as active traders seek new tactics to help manage risk and generate income during high levels of volatility," said Kelli Keough, vice president of Schwab's Active Trading Services. "These new enhancements come at a critical time and will help our clients execute sophisticated trading strategies, even in complex market conditions. As such, they will make important market information more actionable to help investors meet their financial objectives."
