The long-awaited update to the Zaner360 is here. Users can now place option spread orders on a single order entry ticket. This means traders can enter orders for options strategies such as ratio spreads, vertical spreads, iron condors, and more on a single ticket at a single limit price. Although entering option spreads as a package, as opposed to entering orders for each leg individually, isn't always the most efficient it is a fabulous tool to have access to because it gives traders more "options" in how they implement their strategy.
Unfortunately, the option spread trading capability is only available on the live platform (it won't be built into the demo platform for some time). Nevertheless, we've created a quick tutorial video to give prospective customers an idea of how it might work, and guide existing customers through the process of placing an option spread order.
Below is a written user-guide for reference:

Earlier in the year, there was some debate as to whether cryptocurrencies, particularly Bitcoin, would be replacing gold as an alternative currency. At the time, the price of gold and Bitcoin were trading in opposite directions of one another; Bitcoin had spent the month of December 2017 exploding in parabolic fashion to a value of ,000 per coin. At the same time, gold had seemingly lost all of its luster hovering just over 113,100. As we head into mid-2018, we are in a completely different environment. We are still seeing the price of gold and Bitcoin trading in opposite directions, but this time it is gold that is shining and Bitcoin is struggling to prove its value to the markets. Going forward, we tend to believe both gold and Bitcoin will become more positively correlated. Specifically, both quasi-currencies will likely suffer as the greenback gains value.

In their quest for trading commodities profitably, beginning traders spend a substantial amount of time studying market theory, various types of market analysis, and paper-trading in the futures and options markets. Yet, almost all of them fail to take the necessary steps to ensure their trading environment is conducive for the profits they seek. A Trader’s First Book on Commodities aims to fill the void in trading literature that overlooks the importance in making the right decisions before ever placing a commodity trade such as fully understanding market mechanics and logistics, choosing a proper trading platform, understanding order types, being aware of market data fees and policies, how to quote and calculate profit or loss in each of the commodity markets, preparing for margin calls, and the only magic in trading–humility.

The practice of option selling is a controversial strategy for commodity option traders to partake in. Many brokerage firms outright forbid the practice; others allow it, but there are often strings attached. However, there are a limited number of brokerage services that recognize despite the challenges of option selling, it likely offers the highest long-term prospects for successful trading. Accordingly, such brokers give their clients the freedom to implement a short option strategy. We are a part of the minority commodity brokers that believe our clients should be given the opportunity to sell options without hassle. Nevertheless, option selling is far from an “easy-money” venture; there is a reason many brokerage firms shy away from option selling.Read More
