If you sell stock options you know it can be time consuming and difficult to collect data across strikes and expirations to find the best ROI. I started selling options as a way to make some extra income. Being a programmer I decided to pull the data in automatically to analyze it. I found that data to be super useful so I geeked out and made it into a website for anyone to use. If you find optionsellerroi.com to be helpful consider helping support the site.

Why sell options?

I'm not going to get into deep details of selling options. There's lots of great resources for that.

Cash-Secured Puts Video

Covered Calls Video

When you sell an option to a buyer, you collect a premium. And that premium can be pretty great on high volatility stocks. You also set the terms, you pick the expiration and the strike. So you get to decide your risk level.

Examples

Find options with great premiums and ROI here for puts and here for calls. I scan several different sources including the ARK ETFs and Swaggy Stocks FD Rankr for high volatility stocks which produce the best premiums.

Enter up to 3 of your own symbols on those pages as well to compare the best ROI.

Use the symbol lookup page for more detail on a single stock. For example: TSLA

Why isn't the data real time?

There's a limit to how fast I can pull data from Tradier's API. Other data sources are expensive and for the purpose of selling options this data frequency is pretty good. I may look into more real time data in the future.

Is this free?

Yup and I hope to keep it that way. If you find the data on this site is saving you time and / or making you money please consider supporting the site on patreon.

Delta measures how much an option will shift in relation to changes in the price of the underlying stock.

For a put delta will range between -1 and 0. If a put option has a delta of -0.5 then the price of the option will increase $0.50 for each $1 the underlying stock goes down.

For a call delta will range between 0 and 1. If a call option has a delta of 0.5 then the price of the option will increase $0.50 for each $1 the underlying stock rises.

As options move futher in the money the delta will move closer to 1 (calls) or -1 (puts) and the option price will move in step with the underlying stock.

  • *Closed trades include the "Other profit / loss" data in "Final ROI" column
  • The underlying stock symbol
  • The type of option. One of the following: Sold Put, Sold Call, Call or Put
  • Option expiration date
  • Days until the option expires
  • The average cost of your options. For example if you added positions as the price changed this would reflect the average price of the purchases
  • If an option has not been closed this will show the current option value
  • The price that you either bought to close or sold to close your option
  • How many of a given option you opened
  • How much premium you collected for a sold option or how much profit you made on the value of an option that you bought to open
  • Used to track extra profit / loss such as fees and assignment related profit / loss
  • The strike price of the option
  • The percentage of how far in the money (ITM) or out of the money (OTM) the strike currently is.
    For a put if the stock price is below the strike it is ITM and the value will be negative
    For a call if the stock price is above the strike you are ITM and the value will be negative
  • For a sold option this would be (premium / strike) * 100. So if you sold a put for $1 premium and the strike is $10 your expected ROI would be 10%
    Covered calls have other factors to include such as the difference between the underlying stock purchase price and the strike. For simplicity the expected ROI is just calculated based on the premium relative to the strike
  • Your ROI based on the option last price. For a sold option this would be (cost basis - option last) / strike * 100. For a bought option it would be (option last - cost basis) / cost basis * 100
  • For a sold option, how much of your expected ROI you have currently earned. Calculated as current roi / expected roi
  • ROI based on the closed price. For a sold option this would be (cost basis - close price) / strike * 100. For a bought option it would be (close price - cost basis) / cost basis * 100
  • Date the trade was opened
  • Date the trade was closed
  • Whether or not your option was assigned
