Option Flow Screeners

Largest IV (Implied Volatility)

This screener is often used for new trade ideas. Investors like volatility (to a degree) because it raises option prices. If you're looking for interesting things happening to stocks, then look for high IV. Because interesting things are what cause IV to go up. If you come back to this screener often you'll notice some common names appear on it and you'll quickly know why, like during the SVB meltdown names like FRC and PACW were always at the top of the list. During the GME and AMC squeezes? That's right, they dominated the high IV lists. You almost don't even need to read the news, just come to this screener and you'll know which stocks are in the news for sure. Then maybe check the news to see if it is something you want to trade and if so, which way to trade.
