The IV Straddle Yield, IV Covered Call Yield, and IV Cash Secured Put Yield endpoints provide traders with an array of strategies based on options trading that targets different risk profiles and market expectations.
The IV Straddle Yield endpoint offers valuable metrics about straddles for the relevant exchange. Straddles are a classic volatility trade, and this endpoint calculates the vega, theta, and the percentage of spot for each straddle, providing traders with insights into the expected volatility and potential profit of the trade.
The IV Covered Call Yield endpoint focuses on the covered call strategy, which involves holding a long position in the underlying asset and simultaneously writing a call option. The endpoint quickly returns the annualized yields of various scenarios, making it a valuable tool for traders interested in this relatively low-risk strategy.
The IV Cash Secured Put Yield endpoint addresses a low-risk strategy similar to the covered call. In this strategy, traders sell a naked put option while maintaining enough cash to purchase the underlying asset at the predetermined strike price. This endpoint promptly delivers the annualized yields of different scenarios, helping traders assess the potential returns from this strategy.
As always, we focus on data normalization and standardization to ensure consistency across different trading platforms, improving the reliability and usability of our data for informed decision-making.
How is the yield for the IV Straddle Yield calculated?
- The straddles are constructed by first identifying the forward/underlying price. The strike price closest to the current forward/underlying price is selected, and both the call and put will have identical strike prices. The vega and theta numbers are calculated using the Black-Scholes model, with the mid/mark price and forward price as the input parameters. The percentage of spot calculation is done by dividing the $ Value of Straddle by the Current $ Spot.
How can the IV Covered Call Yield endpoint be used for low-risk trading strategies?

How does the IV Cash Secured Put Yield endpoint contribute to low-risk trading approaches?
- The IV Cash Secured Put Yield endpoint addresses the cash-secured put strategy, which involves selling a put option while maintaining enough cash to buy the underlying asset at the strike price.
