NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 16, 2022 / --, a leading global provider of advanced research tools for data-driven investors, now provides advanced analytics that tracks large and unusual options trades so traders can identify directional trading signals in order to improve profits and predict future stock performance.

The Stock Options Flow Leaderboard and ETF Options Flow Leaderboard allows traders to track high-level options statistics and real-time trades that allow traders to follow directional signals, giving them capabilities to predict future stock performance and growth. The flow tracks Unusual Options Activity through several indicators:

Large block options trades with over 1,000 contracts, that are most likely institutional trades
Options trading volume that exceeds the existing open interest in the option type, indicating significant changes in either bullish or bearish sentiment for the underlying stock
Significant changes in implied volatility, or how much the stock price will fluctuate in time.

Below are notable Stock and ETF options flow leaderboard entries for this week. These entries show the securities with the highest net premium purchased in the last seven (7) days, based on trades where a minimum of 1000 contracts are bought, the volume exceeds the existing open interest and the implied volatility increases. These entries are as of February 13, 2022 at 8:00 pm EST:

Top Bullish Single Stocks
* XOM / Exxon Mobil Corporation

This leaderboard of stocks or ETFs is ranked by the net premium (call premium - put premium) paid in large block trades in the current or most recent trading week. Companies at the top of the list have the highest bullish or bearish sentiment by large options buyers. In addition to these indicators, the Unusual Options Flow tracks data that signals contract trading with an expiration in the distant future, indicative of more opportunities for the stock to reach its strike price and grow its time value. In this scenario, buyers and sellers benefit from a greater profit margin given the expectation of change in the value.
