tastyworks IOS Version 2.6.0 11/15/21

tastyworks iOS version 2.6.0 debuts a new design and layout to the Grid Mode on the Watchlist Tab.

Grid Mode Redesign

The grid mode redesign provides a new view for analyzing symbols in a watchlist. Each box will list the symbol at the top, the current IV rank below, the net percentage change in price for the day on the right, and the current market price below that. A small arrow will point up and the box is green when the symbol has increased in price for the day. The arrow will point down and the box will be red when a symbol has decreased in price for the day. Gray boxes indicate symbols with zero change in price for the day (0.00% change in price).  The purple tag with an ‘E’ indicates upcoming earnings for the symbol, with the number of days next to it. For example, E3 stands for exempted earnings in 3 days. The same applies for the Blue ‘D’, but instead D stands for upcoming ex-dividend dates.

tastyworks Desktop version 1.18.0 9/20/21


tastyworks Desktop version 1.18.0 debuts a new risk analysis tool in the capital requirements window.

Adjust Underlying Price, Evaluation Date, and Per Contract IV

Each column calculates the price of options and theoretical gains and losses based on the amount of percentage move in the underlying.

The far left column and far-right column of the risk array will be the theoretical gain and or loss from a 20% up move and or 20% down move in the underlying. These percentages can be changed up to an 100% move in the underlying (split into 20% per column on each side) and or a minimum of 5% (split into 1% per column on each side). Additionally, the evaluated price of the underlying and the day of evaluation can be adjusted. Allows the client to place “what if scenario’s scenarios “ to see how changing of price movement and implied volatility will affect position exposure, in turn, you become your best Risk Manager!

Example of a continuous /ES chart after entering $/ES


Chart Note Annotations and Icon

You can now take on-chart note-taking to the next level by annotating a note by adding an arrow. Furthermore, to prevent clutter on a chart, you can also hide a note on a chart by turning it into a 'T' icon. To add an arrow or turn a note into an icon, double-click the text after adding a note with the Text Note tool. These expanded note-taking features also extend to the Charts tab as well. The screenshot below illustrates (clockwise from the top-left quadrant) where you can find the Text Note tool, the note customization menu, a note shown as an icon, and an example of a note with an arrow added to it.

Example of the expanded note-taking features


Hiding controls on tastycharts

To optimize space and reduce clutter, you can hide the toolbar on the y-axis and scrollbar on the x-axis displayed in each chart within tastycharts. You can quickly hide the controls by unchecking the Show Controls box located at the top right corner of the tastycharts window.

Red ITM Indicator for 0 Days-to-Expiration (DTE) 

Now, any in-the-money (ITM) option options with zero days-to-expiration (0 DTE) will display a red ITM indicator instead of a yellow ITM indicator. Furthermore, any cash-settled index with an AM-expiration will display a red ITM indicator on the last trade date. You can now quickly pick apart any symbol group and options leg(s) with 0 DTE.

Example of a red ITM indicator on a 0 DTE options leg

We also included the Market Indicators watchlist to provide you with insight into the market's overall cadence such as advancers/decliners.
