New QuikStrike layout

The screenshot below shows the new QuikStrike layout for a vanilla option. This updated layout provides added intraday volume updates and a pricing sheet in addition to the former Vol2Vol view. The ‘Product’ and ‘Contract’ buttons allow easier access to QuikStrike analytics, and the ‘Vol History’ button makes it easier to navigate to the common volatility comparison charts.

The updated Vol2Vol layout is cleaner while showing more information. The user can also hover to get data at specific points and click and drag to zoom in on an area.  

The QuikStrike Explorer allows quick browsing of relevant contract data and a glimpse into the power of QuikSheets.

Volume tools make it easier to find and compare volume curves from one date to another, shown in the screenshot below.
