An option chain is a list of calls and puts with prices and other details for the same strike and is available for all available strikes.

The above table is also referred to as the Options Chain. This data refers to how various strikes of options have behaved for a particular contract. This option chain is a one stop view of the entire option picture of the stock. It has a lot of useful analytical value as all the details pertaining to the option are available on one screen.
