Educational options communities focus primarily on teaching discipline to their students. Only by combining due diligence and fundamental research with technical analysis and strong rules-based trading can they outperform investors that trade on feel or rumor. Intrinio provides the data needed for this approach with real-time, 15-minute delayed, and historical options solutions.  

There are several providers that can deliver streaming solutions for options education platforms – so why choose Intrinio?  

Our option data is available with the following datapoints:  

  • Greeks (delta, gamma, theta, vega)
  • Implied volatility
  • Blocks
  • Sweeps
  • Underlying ticker
  • Contract ID
  • Last trade price, size & timestamp
  • Total trade volume
  • Last ask/bid price, size & timestamp
  • Underlying symbol
  • Type: put or call
  • Expiration date
  • Strike price
  • Exercise style
  • Open interest

Let’s say your users want to track historical price-to-earnings ratios to build a list of securities that may be trading at a discount. Developing a small list of value companies for which they might consider buying calls, they want to track the institutional holdings of those securities to see when the big players are starting to build a position. Finally, they want to keep an eye on the implied volatility and Greeks to understand their entry point while tracking contract prices. Intrinio can provide all of this data.

What’s more, Intrinio licenses the data in a flat fee solution designed to help educational options communities display the data without ruining their own profitability. If you run a trading educational service, you don’t make money like a hedge fund – we help you display data to your users on your own platform while keeping costs reasonable.

We also offer a wide variety of additional data sets to enhance the student experience, including historical and current fundamental balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cashflow data; valuation ratios; insider/institutional holdings; and much more.

Combined with custom development services, SDKs, an easy-to-use API, and world-class live support from a US-based team, this makes Intrinio the best solution for educational options communities.
