Expensive Puts and Calls can also be the entry point for Wheel and Overlay strategies.

Overlay Opportunities

Use volatility and Spread Indicators to identify tickers for your next overlay strategy. With dozens of different filters, you'll find an opportunity for every appetite.

The Strip and Screener work together to help you identify stocks, analyze the history, and compare strikes for execution.

3) Execute on trade ideas
