Option Samurai is a diverse tool allowing you to configure your scans based on your personal preferences. You can start this from scratch or you can use one of our predefined scans.
With one click you can find good trading opportunities according to a theme, such as: Safe trades, dividend capture trades, max loss of $100 trades and so on. But you can also customize it to perfectly suit your needs.

To add filters (and columns) press the “ADD FILTERS” button on the top right corner of the left menu. The add filters has a search bar with autocomplete to help you find filters quickly. 

After selecting a filter, it will be added to the filter list on the left menu. In most cases it will also be added as a column on the trade table. 

Advanced filters

You can define each filters value by using the dropdown menu with predefined values. For most filters you can customize the filters by clicking on “Advanced view”.

Return to Dashboard

Pressing on “Dashboard” Will return you back to the dashboard.
