    Hi Rich, I think that UTH is bad quote, a 10 percent return in 10 trading days is not accurate. Something else is going on there. Must have something to do with the IDZ part, otherwise we would mint money by buying the 125s for 10 and selling those 130s for 18 ! Like your site, Thanks, Mark

    That UTH is an adjusted option. I’ve written about it before, it’s too cumbersome for me right now to filter out all the adjusted options on the ETF-Cashinator. I’ll eventually work on it but it will be a while.

    I’ve just started to paper-trade using your method. I hope to get the hang of it soon and move on to real money. Does your program get the options data from like a ticker feed subscription service? Or do you screen-scrape, for example, yahoo finance?

  4. RichSlick says:

    It’s a secret. You can actually get the info free from various places like you mention but I do have to aggregate the data, filter it, perform the calculations so you get a cool rich and creamy set of data that is 100% fat free.

  5. Greg says:

    if you use a .x after your yahoo finance quote you can get their csv data free, but it can be hit or miss whether or not you get the right data.

  6. RichSlick says:

    The cheapest “professional” data download service will cost me $400/month and they will “guarantee” the data to some extent but I’m fairly happy with my current free downloads since I only trade a couple of times a month.

    It is fairly easy to filter the data to screen out the adjusted options, I just don’t have the time to update the application right now.
