Open the Add to Research window to add more stocks to research in OptionGrid. Use the Look Up function if you need help in determining the stock symbol of a company.

Refreshing your research and portfolio quotes is always convenient in OptionGrid. To updates quotes in the current grid, use the Refresh button on the main toolbar.

Deleting data from OptionGrid is easy as highlighting rows in a grid and pressing the Delete button. Are you no longer interested in researching a certain stock?

Screen Shots for Creating and Editing Grids

Create new grids in OptionGrid with the Add New Grid window. Select the type of grid you want to add, and enter the name of the new grid.

Grids are the basic building block of OptionGrid - create as many grids as you need!

Use the Edit Grid dialog to quickly customize the appearance and content of any grid in OptionGrid. Select the data columns that will appear in a grid as well as the order in which those data columns will be displayed.

The Edit Grid dialog also designates which stocks and options are displayed in a grid. Do you just want to view the 30 Dow stocks in a particular grid? Use the Edit Grid dialog to quickly and easily select only those stocks that you want to see.

Every data field in OptionGrid, from option expiration dates to stock prices to annual returns, can be filtered and screened. Are you only interested in covered calls that return better than 10%? Stocks that pay a dividend? Calls with less than 30 days to expiration? Portfolio positions that ended in 2005? Combine multiple filters on the Edit Grid dialog to precisely display only the data that you want to see.
