    This comment is for the programers at -- VectorVest Please Please give us Weekly Option in the Options analyzer And another suggestion currently you have a "X" if it is optionable Please change the X to a "W " for those companies that have a Weekly Option - the CBOE will e-mail you a updated Weekly Options List - each Wednesday -once set it will take very little to maintain because the number of additions and deletions each week is "minimal' - the change to a "W" should be easy ?- Thank You Bob Hendy a 10 yr. VV user

    Weekly options are growing exponentially. There must be an relatively easy way to identify them on VV or via a watchlist which I do, but it is a pain to keep it updated. Don't let the world pass you by for not being able to keep up with hot demands. Sincerely.

    At least give us a built-in watchlist for all stocks, etfs, and indices which have weekly options. The CBOE seems to make additions/deletions at will/whimsey. Trading weekly options is no longer an exotic eccentricity. Surely your data vendor can supply an up-to-date list on an ongoing basis just as it supplies an up-to-date list of, say, the RUT. This should be an easy fix which would save a number of your subscribers the time/effort of building and updating their own such

    Agree with all of the other comments. Weekly options are now being traded heavily. Would like to see them included as part of the data base for Options Analyzer and relevant Unisearch tools included to find/sort them.

    I asked support if they would simply maintain a watchlist of underlying stocks that have weekly options and they said there was no interest in that and that I should google "weeklies" and that some web site would tell me which stocks had weekly options. So far I haven't found that site but I did find one that had a list of ETFs that trade weeklies.

    Need a stock list that contains stocks that are capable of trading "weekly expired options" - Thank you for your time & consideration.

    Regards ..

    For options traders who use (or want to use) VV this should be a no brainer! I would like it to also be included in the ORR in Unisearch. Just think how this could energize the PayDay Portfolio. This might even solve the unemployment crisis.

    I suggested this also in the Yahoo VV forum. Weeklies have been a great profit generator for me, but since VV does not have them I have been doing my analysis on Think or Swim, so let's make Options Analyzer more competitive. The programming piece cannot be THAT hard, since weeklies are a part of the same data feed as other contracts.

    With Vector Vest being the leader in the market, it would be a nice addition to have the weekly option analyser. P.S. it may add additional subscriptions for this service as those who use it will be very well satisfied with how well and easily it works

    I am moving most of my options trading to those stocks that have weekly options, and other platforms already have the capability to analyze weeklies (think or swim for example). Would like to see this enhancement as soon as possible. Thank you.

    weekly options are a good vehicle for some of the event driven option strategies or for sellers of time decay. It would be nice to see the weekly options in addition to the current monthly and LEAP options.

    This will certainly add breadth to the options universe and safety of knowing the predictibility and potential safety in putting on all the option possibilities in that universe.

    Should create a watchlist that has all of the CBOE Weekly Expiration options and be able to run the Option Rate of Return module on these.
