We offer several account settings to customize your experience on the Volatility platform. To access and modify these settings, navigate to your Account.
Dashboard Default Expiry
The Dashboard, Macro, Equities, Put Writing, and Covered Call screens show you option metrics such as implied volatility data that are calculated from options that expire at a certain time in the future (for example, one month from now). By default, three month options are used in the screens. You can modify this default setting to one week, one month, six months, one year, or two years. As mentioned in the Dashboard Guide, you can always view the other expiries without changing this default setting.
Backtesting Strategy Type
As mentioned in the Backtest Specific Options Guide, the Specific Options interface offers systematic and discretionary backtesting calculation types. You can change the default setting from Systematic to Discretionary.
The Backtest Visualization (Expected Value) chart will be shown by default after a backtest completes. You can change this default setting to the Equity Curve or Histogram.
Underlying Price on Implied Volatility Charts
Volatility Implied Volatility Charts show the three month at-the-money implied volatility of the underlying asset on the left y-axis and the underlying asset's price on the right y-axis by default. If you don't want to see the underlying price, you can disable that here.
We sometimes send market update emails, and you can unsubscribe or re-subscribe to those here.
