List of Optionable Stocks for the US Market

I have already uploaded a trading object to get optionable information for US Stocks. The item is located here US Stocks: Exchange, Market, Sector, S&P 500, Optionable. It gets also exchange, market, sector and the indices the stock belongs to.

This trading object gets data from another website; it marks stocks that are optionable by settings their corresponding field "optionable" of the database "optionable" to one. Value is set to zero for non optionable stocks.

A stock is optionable when it has options trading on a market exchange. Currently, there are more than 3000 companies with optionable stocks. There are some requirements that must be met in order for a stock to become optionable. For example, a stock is required to have a minimum number of outstanding shares and a minimum share price.
Knowing if a stock is optionable is very important if you plan to develop option-based trading strategies or if you want to use indicators based on a stock's options.

Here are some interesting trading objects:
Options Market - Trading volume data per Exchange for US Stocks downloads options volume data for each underlying stock.
Individual Stocks Put and Call Volume downloads the volume of put and call transactions for each optionable stock and for each trading day.

For a list of stocks that can be shorted (Shorting is the process of selling a stock without owning it), follow the next item: List of Shortable Stocks.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
