Layout & Navigation
Designed to reinforce our tenet: “Market First”, Option Stalker displays the SPY header at the top of the display on every page, giving you continuous access to market conditions.
1 At the bottom, use the navigation bar to access the various sections of the web app: Charts, Search, Lists (Home), Chat (for Chat & Pro members), and Menu.
At the heart of Option Stalker are the OneOption trade signals. Always visible on the market header, these signals provide an intuitive multi-timeframe view into the strength and direction of SPY, and thus the market. Colors red and green denote bearish and bullish, respectively, and are formed using a confluence of factors, most notably: OneOption’s 1OP indicator. Blue outlines represent higher than normal volume, and each trade signal links to its corresponding chart and timeframe. These trade signals are visible on all lists within Option Stalker to give you a deeper trading perspective.
Lists form the central hub of Option Stalker and will be where you spend most of your time. Here you will find your Watchlists and saved Custom Scanners, plus all the OneOption Preconfigured Scanners. If you are a Pro subscriber, your Watchlists will sync with Option Stalker Pro (desktop).
1 For Scanners, toggle the Bearish and Bullish tabs to browse relevant options depending on market conditions.
2 Click the blue plus button in the bottom right to create new Watchlists or Custom Scanners.
3 You can return Home anytime via the OneOption logo in the navigation bar.
Preconfigured Scanners are special-built scanners designed by OneOption founder Pete Stolcers that have been refined over many years of testing and improvement. Sorted into categories, these Scanners are powerful tools to find candidate stocks, whether you’re trading on a swing basis, looking for short term day trades, or need to scan for more generalized criteria. To quickly change scanners, click the scanner name to display a list of all available Scanners and Watchlists.
1 Hover over the “i” (for “info”) icon to view a detailed description of the scan.
2 Scanner results can be sorted alphabetically or by percentage change or price.
3 You can access scanner options via the elipsis “…” icon in the upper-right to enable Auto-refresh or filter scanner results for stocks with high Option Liquidity.
One of OneOption’s most powerful features is Custom Search. With it, you can build and view new scanners of your own design. To access the builder, click the blue “+” button at Option Stalker home. You will be taken to the Custom Scanner Editor with a comprehensive list of possible search variables. Expand each variable group to display the related timeframe parameters.
1 You can define your scanner variables by clicking the checkboxes.
2 Click ‘View Results’ to immediately scan the universe of stocks for those that fit your criteria.
Custom Scanner Results
Custom scanner results look identical to the Preconfigured Scanners. The trade signals provide a multi-timeframe perspective to complement % change and price.
1 Saved search variables are available to view using “i” icon next to the scanner name.
2 As before, the options include Auto-refresh, but also allow you to copy a shareable link to share with fellow traders, or perform editing actions like duplicate, edit, create new, and delete.
Personalized watchlists on Option Stalker allow you to monitor your stocks with real-time updates and trade signals from anywhere. Create new watchlists via the plus “+” icon on Option Stalker home. Search for stocks via ‘Search’ in the navigation bar to add them to a watchlist.
1 Editing is also possible: Symbols can be added to Watchlists using the “+” icon.
2 Rename, clear, remove, or create new lists via the options menu.

Built with smooth charting technology, Option Stalker charts are clean to keep you focused on the price action and essential technical analysis. With these charts you can quickly flip through your lists and consider potential candidates with the help of the 1OP, 1OSI, and 1OVol indicators. Click the symbol to switch between symbols,
