Who is this Guide for?

This user guide is aimed at all users of OptionNET Explorer (“ONE”). You may be new to option trading or an expert, or unfamiliar with Personal Computers and their software or a seasoned techie - whatever you are, we hope you will find something here to help you get the most out of ONE.

How to use this Guide?

Please use this guide as you feel best suits your purpose. There is no need to read this as a book from cover to cover (unless you are so inclined) but you may find it useful for:

Gaining a deeper understanding of some aspect of the software (by browsing the Guide).

Familiarizing oneself with new features introduced by a recent upgrade of the ONE software (look out for a What's New Section in future versions of this User Guide).

In either case, feel free to skip over that which is either irrelevant, already familiar to you or simply too much detail.
