The primary goal of Oscreener is to provide the user a conceptual understanding of how options perform over time and demonstrate potential risks and benefits of options trading. Oscreener provides a unique approach towards options trading education where students learn by reviewing historical performance of their trading ideas and analyze the results before risking any capital.

Trading options does not begin by running out to buy a call or put. It is the culmination of your analysis of the markets, sectors, and the underlying security for your trade. Because you may be exploring new strategies, you want to evaluate these strategies in a systematic way to reinforce your understanding of them while also addressing the unique characteristics of options.
Oscreener allows you to simulate option strategies with multiple historical performance metrics for strategy tweaking and optimization.

In order to beat the market with minimal risk, we must know the weakness and strength of each option strategy. Study options trading by monitoring your strategies performance, managing risk and setting notifications from your Oscreener dashboard.

Option trading made so simple:
a) Select screening parameters from the left menu
b) Specify stop loss (%) from back tester menu
c) Test your strategy and tweak many other parameters.

Start your options trading education from choosing the right strike price
Choosing the right strike price when trading options can determine the odds of success vs. failure over the long run:

- HIGH out-of-the-money option strikes > lead to HIGH profit vs loss ratio > but LOW probability of successful trade
- LOW in-the-money option strikes > lead to LOW profit vs loss ratio > but HIGH probability of successful trade

Oscreener Simulator provides probability metrics to help traders identify optimal strategies without risking any capital.
