Vertical Navigation

Remember you can switch to full screen in the video controls. Based on feedback, future videos will have a different resolution so the information is easier to read on smaller screens.

Regardless of the specific way that your software displays an options chain, the reference to vertical navigation has to do with Higher and Lower strike prices.

Some platforms list the strikes numerically (first strike at the top, last strike at the bottom). Others list them Highest to Lowest. After a period of time, you will be able to move from one platform to another and instantly interpret which strikes are above and below the current market price.

Before moving on, open up the software you plan to use and observe how the strikes are listed, where the puts and calls are shown, and if/how the ITM vs. OTM options are identified.
