The contract history window now offers new columns for Options Pro users only. These include a "volatility initiator" column, a "trade volatility difference" column, and multiple vega measurement columns. These new columns can show whether the trade aggressor bought or sold volatility in each trade, as well as whether the volatility level of the trade is over or under your own volatility level and by how much. This can be helpful in determining how different trades are moving volatility in a market in real time. These columns can be added from the properties menu of the contract history window, and are found under the "theoretical" section in the columns tab.

To see Net Edge and other Theoretical values on the Contract History window as trades occur. Select the columns you want to see from the Contract History window properties.


Tip: Net Edge shows only if there is an edge to your theoretical price. You can set filters to show or highlight Net Edge values on the Contract History properties window.
