 Quantcha is a suite of investment tools that helps you turn a good idea about a stock into a great options trade. Quantcha’s flagship Options Search Engine provides a unique way to leverage dozens of options strategies to zero in on the optimal trade for your market view. The in-depth Trade Analyzer provides an easy-to-digest risk-neutral trade review that evaluates each trade idea from every perspective to uncover potential pitfalls before you pull the trigger. With features that help you find trading opportunities, craft optimal strategies, and manage option portfolios, Quantcha provides everything you need to take your option investing to the next level.

In addition to investment tools, Quantcha also offers an API that provides access to the platform’s underlying data and functionality. Raw data feeds are available for historical and implied volatility, as well as option analytics data such as put/call ratios, forward prices, and option breakevens. For all raw data, daily history is available back to 2002. For developers looking for even deeper integration, Quantcha’s platform API offers trade idea generation, portfolio analysis, and option book management.

 Machine-readable technologies have forever changed the way stocks trade. Individual asset prices are increasingly more susceptible to news, rumors, TV mentions, and Twitter posts. So what does it all mean? It means that this new trading environment requires a new approach—and new tools for capturing alpha. Which is where we come in.

To help you systematically react to these opportunities, we’ve developed the NewsHedge ALPHA API, a self-learning, self-adjusting technology that’s able to uncover notable price and volume velocities happening within 6,000+ individual assets, including velocities occurring instantly (milliseconds), or over a few minutes.
