The Right Way to Write Options

With the IBKR Write Options tool you can start with the big picture, then filter by symbol down to a single underlying stock. The tool quickly shows all of your positions, long and short, and makes it easy for you to write covered options or buy protective puts. You can also easily analyze and adjust option-to-stock volume ratios by entering the expiration dates and strike criteria of your positions.
