“I used to try and sift through hundreds of tickers to find the best options plays. But this watchlist gives me a MUCH better starting point each day."

“Less is more, right? After pruning my tickers 'on watch' down to a handful with this watchlist, I focus more of my attention on better plays."

With this watchlist you will:

Focus on names that typically have solid options
Remove watchlist and ticker overwhelm
Block out noise from Twitter or chatrooms that announce uncommon tickers with poorer options
Become more efficient at day trading options
Be better prepared for the best plays before the opening bell

More about this watchlist:

If you're an options trader, you know how important it is to find options with consistent volume and volatility. Without these two criteria, the probability for poor fills and weak moves can rise dramatically.

Instead of spreading out your attention on too many tickers (many of which have tricky-to-play options), why not focus your attention on a handful of the more consistent underlying symbols, which have easier-to-play options?

Use our core options watchlist as a base watchlist when day trading options (you can add your favorites or remove the ones you don't like). As you begin to focus on a select few tickers, you will become more comfortable in understanding how they move and how to trade them.

This watchlist is based on tickers that typically have strong average ATRs, strong average options volume, and consistently tighter spreads. It focuses on *day trading* options. If you're primarily a swing trader, you can simply use this list to complement your favorite tickers.

NOTE: All the variables used to make this watchlist can change dramatically due to higher market volatility, news events, corporate actions, etc.

Feel free to print the checklist out and hang it up or keep it handy on your desktop as a reference guide. We also provide a ThinkorSwim link for those who use ToS as their trading platform.
