Options chain(redirected from Options Chains)
Options chains are charts showing all the options currently available on a particular underlying instrument.
A chain, also called an options string, provides the latest price quotes for all those contracts as well as the most recent price for the underlying instrument and whether that price is up or down.
Because all this information is available in one place, options chains allow you to assess the market for a particular option quickly and easily. They're a popular feature of online trading and financial information sites.
