Options trading in the AgenaTrader – Private Beta Program

After countless hours of development, the implementation of basic options trading in the AgenaTrader is finally nearing its end and we are planning to start the Private Beta Program at the beginning of August.

Private Beta means that basic functionalities of options trading will be available for interested parties. Yet there will be a great deal of testing necessary to put the finishing touches on the new functionalities. For this testing, we are looking for interested options traders who want to take a closer look at those new tools and make an impact on further developments with their feedback. Options trading in the Private Beta Program will only be available for those who applied for the participation in this program.

During the first stage of the Private Beta Program, options trading will be possible with an IB- or CapTrader account. In addition, IQ-Feed will be availabla as an external options data feed. Additional broker and data feed connections will be enabled in the further course of the program.

The following functionalities will be enabled for the participants of the Private Beta Program:

– OptionChains for stock- and futures options

– Standard OptionsTradingPad

– OptionsCalendar

– Options ChartTrading

– Options indicators (graphical display of the Greeks and other options information)

All those who are interested in participating in this program are asked to send an email with the subject „OptionsTrading – Private Beta Programm“ to to inform us about their interest in the OptionsTrading Private Beta Program.

Youtube – TradingChannel ranking

In times of the internet and global networking, online training and blended learning have become an integral part of trading. Countless providers of such learning opportunities can be found on YouTube in particular.

Looking for an online training often leaves you spoilt for choice, especially when self-appointed experts turn out as shallow pitchmen and allegedly promising strategies prove to be empty talk. Fortunately, there are also the other ones – those who seriously want to impart knowledge – and have the ability to do it.

But how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? In many cases, the number of subscribers or channel views seems to be sufficient as a quality feature, but appearances are deceptive: often the biggest squallers get the most attention in the beginning but lose their visitors as soon as they are exposed as blowhards.

Considerably more significant is the return value of a channel – channels with less subscribers and views in comparison to others can still be of much higher quality, as their viewers are returning again and again. There are YouTube channels that have set the return value of users as a quality feature. For example: a user return of 100 means that each subscriber has accessed this page 100 times on average. For a channel with 1 million page views and a subscriber list of 10000 users, this results in a return value of 100.

So that you don’t have to click your way through the YouTube universe to find the best TradingChannels, now offers the Youtube – TradingChannel-Ranking, where you can find an ongoing rating of the 50 best TradingChannels, starting with a channel with a return value of 46,3.

Insider tip: 1st place has a return value of 333 – so sign up for this TradersYard group today and experience this exciting countdown!
