New on StockTrak – Option Spreads

StockTrak has been allowing students to virtually trade options for years, but we have recently updated our option spread trading pit to now make it easier for students to place these trades with the correct legs.

For Fall 2023, StockTrak has completely revamped our Option Spreads trading engine. The Option Spreads trading pit now includes a “Spread Builder” – students choose the type of spread they want, and we establish which legs they need to select.

We also include a description of how this spread works, and charts showing the profit points so students understand how they are building a strategy.
