An options matrix document consists of two views: The underlying view on top, which shows data about the underlying symbol, and the options matrix view, which shows the Eurex options for this underlying. The options are either grouped by expiration date (default) or by strike price. The underlying view can also be hidden.

To group options by expiration date or by strike price

▪       Right-click on the options matrix and choose Group by Strike Price or Group by Expiration Date to switch between the two grouping methods.

Note             This setting can also be adapted in the Options Matrix Properties.

To expand and collapse groups

▫       Double-click on a group header to expand or collapse a group.

▫       Press and hold the Ctrl key while double-clicking on a group header to expand a group and at the same time collapse all other groups (switching between groups).

To select symbols in the options matrix view

▫       Click on a row to select an options symbol (Call side or Put side). You can also select multiple symbols by holding the Ctrl or Shift keys.

▫       Click on the middle column (strike price or expiration date column) to select both sides at the same time.

▫       Press Ctrl + A to select all visible options symbols at once.

▫       After selecting one or more option symbols, you can perform actions on them by right-clicking the selection (for example open a price page, copy the content to Excel etc.).

Note             You cannot select individual columns in the options matrix view.
If you double-click the middle column, the Options Matrix Properties dialog opens.

To show and hide the underlying view

▪       Right-click on the options matrix and choose Show Underlying or Hide Underlying.
