Option Chain

Option Chain
A form of quoting options prices through a list of all of the options for a given security. An option chain is simply a listing of all the put and call option strike prices along with their premiums for a given maturity period. The majority of online brokers and stock trading platforms display option quotes in the form of an option chain.

Option chains are probably the easiest form of presentation for most retail investors to understand when observing option quotes. Much like a matrix, traders can simply find an options premium by following the corresponding maturity dates and strike prices. Additionally, bid-ask quotes or simply mid quotes can be displayed within an option chain, depending on the presentation of the data.
