    With more options strategies coming into focus in VectorVest, it is time to include real market prices and expirations in this software so that the tools like the Options Rate of Return tool will give actionable information without having to leave the software for another program like 'Think or Swim' to get factual option data.

    Apparently VectorVest hasn't advised you folks that the values shown under Option Price is not the price at which the option is traded. It is a number calculated using the Black-Scholes model. This field doesn't even get the experiation month right. What would be valuable would be a column with the actual option prices. Since the stock prices are retrieved from a data feel, it should be simple to load the option prices from the same data feel.

    Having access to option chain would be an excellent improvement, but even better would be the ability to use Unisearch to find option opportunities using appropriate parameters. For example: Create a search for optionable stocks/ETFs whose price is equal to or less than $10. List for the current month (and/or next month) whose OTM strike premium would give at least a 2% return if call not assigned. Investools has this feature; Vv should also.

    Will make VV more useful for identifying best covered call trades, especially if:
    - %return (call premium / stock price)
    - market premium
    are included in the calculation.

    Adding a new expanded and updated OPTIONS Module to vectorvest intraday would be spectacular.

    In the options analyzer, the option prices are estimated by the Black-Scholes model. Unfortunately,this doesnot account for the volatility that we have experienced recently. With Real Time, it should be easy to 'plug in'the option price automatically to enable a more precise estimate of the outcome of an option strategy. Thanks
