The OVI:
trading stocks and options with an edge

What is the OVI?

The 'Options Volatility Indicator' reveals the activity of elite traders.

Created by Guy Cohen, the OVI is derived from options data and reveals the activity of elite market players.

In particular, the OVI distinguishes between ‘aggressive position-building’ activity from ‘protective hedging’ activity.

This enables you to participate in stocks where there is strong leveraged sentiment from professional players in either direction.

Validated by a quantitative portfolio live track record which has outperformed the S&P, the OVI can be used to trade stocks with enhanced odds, and also to establish overall market direction.

How the OVI works

The OVI collects all the complex data you see in an options chain and transforms it into a simple line that gives you a unique edge for assessing a stock.

The OVI is Guy Cohen’s proprietary and patented indicator, over 20 years in the making. Each optionable stock has an option chain that reveals contract details including pricing, liquidity, and other important metrics. Every night our servers plough through billions of data points, doing the hard work for you and revealing insights that are simply not available elsewhere.

We continue to innovate, which means ongoing improvements to our algorithms.

These algorithms incorporate Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning principles, and are regularly reviewed to ensure we adhere to the highest standards. The OVI is the inspiration behind our unique trading approach and is only available to private investors via WiseTraders.
