Found exclusively at OptionSlam.com are the seven day implied move charts and historical tables.

Our unique formula produces the price of a theoretical at the money straddle which expires seven days out in time thereby indicating a market generated seven day implied move.

Implied Move calculations are critical pieces of information which option traders use to assist in strategy design. The IM7 charts and tables are especially helpful for the trader looking to design a short term trade strategy around an earnings event.


The blue line on the chart is the theoretical seven day implied move. It is easy to see that implied volatility is building into an earnings event and crushing immediately thereafter by observing the IM7.

Then for comparison purposes the actual maximum move over the next seven days is plotted by the black line

Finally the actual one day post earnings max move is plotted with the red dot.

All data on these charts is in absolute terms.
