There are currently 423 products that trade weekly options including most major indices, stocks, and ETF's. Here are some of the advantages of weekly option trading. Weeklies tend to be more liquid allowing for better and faster fills. Weeklies have tighter bid/ask spreads minimizing slippage (take a look at the difference in SPX bid/ask spreads between monthly and weekly expiration dates). Weeklies allow for greater flexibility by providing more trading opportunities for active investors. StockCharts.com has a wonderful array of trading tools to help subscribers gain a competitive advantage, but they don't yet allow scanning for weekly option, e.g. "[weekly optionable is true]". Scanning for weekly options should be part of the mix. Do you agree?
