An odd thing about many options packages is that they don't often exploit the major points in options' favor: their flexibility. As a general rule, I believe options aren't a great deal for the investing public. They are expensive (perhaps a reflection of the true underlying risks of the market) and commissions are high. In their favor is their ability to manage a position as it evolves, to move the position up/down in price or in/out in time.

Optionvue Plus, in contrast, seems designed to exploit, rather than ignore, these opportunities. Its analytical flexibility extends across time, price and volatility by which I mean that all three variables are easily and conveniently manipulated.

Author Len Yates' philosophy, Succeeding with Options, Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, September and October 1986) is generally to use options' decaying value in conservative strategies which can be expected to yield above-average returns over time, though they are not positioned for explosive speculative gains. That philosophy is implemented in Optionvue Plus, version 1.9.
