Saved parameter settings...
The PowerOptions site comes with saved parameter settings for In the money and Out of the Money values, and it also has several programmed stock lists such as S&P's, Dow 30's, IBD 100, Value Line's, Optionable Indexes and many more. These are just some examples that we have set up for you so you can see the value of the site. But please, don't feel as if that is all that can be done.

Steps to set up and save your own Personal Settings
Stock Research Tool - Stock Market ResearchIf you have not done so yet, go to: https://www.poweropt.com/logon.asp.

Stock Investing ResearchEnter your User ID and password then click the [Log On] button. The My Home page will appear.

Stock Investing ResearchSelect the tab, Covered Call, Naked Put, etc., for whichever strategy you are interested in researching.
Stock Research Tool - Stock Market ResearchYou should then see a page specific to the strategy selected.

Stock Research Tool - Stock Market ResearchTo get started setting up your own personal search parameters, select
    "Search" from the sub-tab menu.


Stock Investing ResearchBelow the search results table, you should see the
    parameters/filter table where you can set the ranges
    for different criteria. And, if you scroll down to the very
    bottom of the page there will be two blue buttons:
    [Submit these Settings] and [Clear these Settings].
    Click the [Clear these Settings] button.


Stock Research Tool - Stock Market ResearchWhen you have done this, the number values in the parameter fields should empty. If they did not, try clicking the button
    again.

Stock Investing ResearchNow that your parameter fields are clear you can enter the values of the individual parameters that you want the system to
    search for.

Stock Research Tool - Stock Market ResearchRULES OF THUMB: Do not fill in every field in the parameter boxes. If you fill in every field and click [Submit] there will most
    likely be no options found that match all of those criteria. One way to use the tool is to write down a list of the parameters
    most important to you. Enter these one at a time and click [Submit] after you enter each new parameter. This will start you
    off with a lot of results at first, but step-by-step you can limit those results down to two or three pages. You do not need to
    put "0" into any field. Greater than "0" values make sense for things like the option volume and open interest, but you do
    not need to enter a value of greater than 0 and less than 2.1 Broker Recommendation. Just enter a value of 2.1 in the less
    than box. Do not enter greater than or less than signs in the field boxes.

Stock Investing ResearchOnce you have set all the parameters to your specific
    search criteria, go to the top of the parameter field
    section and you will see a long text box.
     To the left of the text box it should say "Search Settings Saved As" and to the right of the box there should a blue [Save]
     button. When your parameters are set, click the [Save] button.

Stock Research Tool - Stock Market ResearchAn input box will now appear below the [Save] button
    asking you to name your settings. You can name it
    anything you want: "My Settings", or "Open Stock
    Price", or "High Volume Search", etc.


Stock Investing ResearchYou may also want to enter a description for your settings. This is just a simple blurb describing your parameters so you can
    remember why you did that search or what that search should return. The description is optional.

Stock Research Tool - Stock Market ResearchAfter you've entered the Search Name and the Search Description, select the [Save This Search] link and the SmartSearchXL
    Tool will search the database using those settings. Your new settings selection will be saved in the settings drop down box
    and can be selected anytime you logon to your account. You can create numerous different settings of differing parameters.

You have now created your own set of settings that match your investing techniques. You can use these settings at any time to search against the recommended lists that have been programmed into the site for you. But what if you want to use your new settings to search against particular stocks or options that you are interested in? Here is how to create your own list(s)...

Stock Investing ResearchClick your mouse DIRECTLY on the letters "(Create/Modify Lists)", not on the drop down arrow next to the box, but actually
    on the blue letters. A new page will appear giving you the option of editing a list, if you already have a list, and/or creating
    a new list.
