How it works

It's really easy to find great options trades. All you need to do is provide your view of the underlying stock and we'll do all the heavy lifting for you.
Pick your stock

Start off by picking a stock you'd like to analyze. We'll get you a list of expirations.

Pick your expiration

What's your time horizon? We'll get all the options expiring on that date so we can evaluate all of the possible ways you can trade for that expiration.

Adjust the forecast to reflect your view

We'll use over three dozen trading strategies to calculate thousands of potential trades based on your forecast. Don't worry, we'll give you the exact leg positions for each idea so that you can easily open any trade you like.

Optionally add in your budget and/or brokerage for more accurate results

We'll factor in your budget and brokerage fees & commissions to help you understand how to make the most of your investment.

Sort & filter the results

We'll quickly filter and sort thousands of trade ideas so you only see the ones that meet those that meet your risk and return requirements.

Analyze attractive trade opportunities

Drill into the prospective trades that catch your eye in order to better understand the risks and opportunities each provide. You'll also get to see some data we infer from the current option pricing to understand how well your forecast aligns with the current market sentiment.

Share and multiply

Have a great idea for a forecast or trade? Click the "Share" button to quickly share your idea via email, Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social networks. You can even embed our search results and trade analysis widgets into your own Web site.

Stay in the know

If there's a trade you'd like to track, simply add it to your watchlist and we'll send you updates on all the trades you're watching before the market opens each day or week. Don't worry, email notifications are disabled by default, so you'll only get these messages if you opt in.

The Quantcha Challenge

Not sure if you can achieve better results using options? Check this out.
Over 9 weeks we outperformed the S&P by 2.4%

We set out to prove that any investor could take professional equity advice and use Quantcha to find great options trades. We partnered with Zacks to use their "Bull & Bear of the Day" picks on each Friday as the basis for our options trades.

Over the course of two months, we placed two trades per week using market orders and publishing each trading session to YouTube so that everyone can see how easy it is to find and execute great options trades.

While we didn't crush the market, we did have a solid run. And if you really want to see how it all happened, get started with the video below.
