Key coding indicators for selling (Naked) Puts that rarely get exercised


Hi, I'm looking for a cluster of standard coding I can clone that will help me identity opportunities to sell naked puts (stocks I actually like) at a price that will rarely be exercised. I just signed up to this awesome application today so please go easy on me as I'm just learning what back testing is all about.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks,

:) Welcome @Joshua! We were all beginners once don't worry. We currently support equities and forex, and plan to support futures soon. Options are a very different type of asset and we don't have any options data -- do you have options data?

The other tool that might help is this platform - Quantcha - an options search engine.

Thanks for your response Jared. Unfortunately I do not have any options data at the moment but if I ever get to the point where I have access to such data I'll be sure to share. Thanks for the Quantcha - an options search engine link too

I am currently using an options trading strategy, or at least an approximation:

I use a fixed options price per contract ($100 at .60 delta)
I set the leverage to 100x
I determine the number of contracts (cash/price)
I determine the number of equivalent shares of stock (contracts * 100 * delta)
And then I just buy/sell that amount of stock
