Support:

I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide explanations for the PutVal and CallVal parameters in OmniTrader:





There is no explanation for the parameter in the Option Module manual.

Thanks,

Tom Helget

Look on page 9-10 of the OptionTrader User Guide for the indicators.

Barry:

While pages 9-10 of the "Option Trader User Guide" does give a brief description of the Put Value and the Call Value there is no reference whatsoever to the Parameter Inputs of these Indicators.

What happens when "In the Money" is checked?

Does "Strike" refer to the next strike up or down? In the case of Put Value Up if "In the Money" is checked and Down if "In the Money" is not checked?

The Expiration parameter - is that in days to expiration?

And, here is the biggest mystery to me (I really don't know much about options) what in the heck is "Roll" and what are it's units of measurement - days maybe?

Thanks, any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.
