Updated over a week ago

You can find the Strategy builder in the Options Hub by tapping on the ‘Strategy’ tab. Here you will learn about a wide variety of option strategies, ranging from long calls and puts to straddles and spreads.

Option strategies can be divided into four categories:

  1. Fundamentals including Long Call, Long Put, Covered Call, and Cash-secured Put

  2. Straddles & Strangles including Long Straddle and Long Stangle

  3. Vertical Spreads including Call Debit Spread, Call Credit Spread, Put Debit Spread, and Put Credit Spread

  4. Calendar Spreads including Long Call Calendar Spread and Long Put Calendar Spread

While some of these strategies are not currently offered and coming soon to Public, you can still learn about them by toggling ‘Education mode’ on via the question mark toggle next to each category name. From here, you can watch videos about each strategy and/or read about the strategy in our Options Education Hub.

Can I filter the Strategies based on my outlook?

At the top of the page, you will see a series of icons. Tapping on each will filter the potential strategies for that respective outlook. For example, if you tap the green up arrow, you will filter to only bullish strategies since you expect the price of the underlying asset will go up.

What are the Strategy charts?

When you open the Strategy tab, you will see a visual chart under strategy. These charts are included to help you understand the profit / losses of each strategy. The blue dots illustrate where the breakeven point falls for each strategy.

How can I use the Strategy builder to place an order?

Before you enter a position, you can plan and build a wide range of options trading strategies, from single-leg to complex multi-leg strategies. For the strategies that Public currently offers, tapping the strategy card will take you to an ‘Explore’ tab filtered on that strategy, sorted by market volume. Learn more about the ‘Explore’ tab.
