The Options Engine extension automatically calculates additional relevant information to supplement the Yahoo Finance options chain tables.
Options Engine does repetitive calculations for you to help you analyze potential options trades.
Percent Change @ Exp
For each row in the options chain, Options Engine calculates the Percent Change @ Exp.
The Percent Change @ Exp is the change in stock price between the strike price and the current price as a percentage of the current price.
This is so you know how much and in which direction the current price needs to move during the contract period to equal the strike price.
The formula is the following.
Percent Change @ Exp = (strikePrice - stockPrice / stockPrice) * 100
Options Engine also highlights in green the rows that are interesting to options sellers based on that percentage calculation.
Seller Inc %
For each row in the options chain, Options Engine calculates the seller income percentage based on the average of the bid and ask prices as a percentage of the current stock price.
This is so you know the value of the contract price in relation to the current value of the underlying stock.
The formula is the following.
Seller Inc % = (avgBidAskPrice / stockPrice) * 100
We are adding more features, so please reach out with any ideas you have.

Options Engine also offers convenience features to save you time and hassle. These features reduce scrolling, refreshes, and clicking that you have to do.
The Options Engine Bar contains a button for toggling the Options Engine features in the options chain tables on or off. The bar also has quick links to the calls and puts tables in addition to our website where you can subscribe to our options newsletter.
We also put the current price in the browser's tab so that you can see it even while you have already scrolled past the price to look at the options chain tables.
Even with the price in the tab, you can still see which company you are viewing in the url.
With no price in the tab, you have to scroll or click to find the price while viewing the options chains and you get duplicate information between the tab and the url.
This is an example of the browser tab without Options Engine.
Look for other convenience features as we continue to build out the extension.
