What is the SpiderRock Chart Tool?

Our Chart Tool enables users to visualize options surfaces and compare relative volatilities between stocks by creating simple and more complex spreads or ratios. Users can quickly analyze the impact of earnings and options skew on implied and historical volatility across stocks, ETFs, and indices using our multi-year database of point-in-time option surfaces. 

This allows users to quickly develop, save and share multiple charts to collaborate with their peers. The data is also easily downloaded for further analysis.
