Globex Grains Most Active Options Dashboard

This Microsoft Excel® dashboard scans the options on soybeans, wheat, and corn (Globex) futures markets for volume. It displays strikes ranked by the volume traded for each expiry listed. The scan covers options traded ten strikes above and below the at-the-money option. Then the top five strikes by traded volume are presented on the main display for calls and puts.

The dashboard is divided into three groups: the first group is the soybean market, the second is the wheat market, and the third is the corn market. Again, the options are sorted by volume, not strikes. The options volume data is heat-mapped by groups with the highest volume levels in bright green.

In addition, the bottom section displays the last quote, net change, and total contract volume for the first five contracts for soybeans, wheat, and corn.

Two versions are available: one has a black background and one has a planet earth background.
