weekly options based off NT charts

What is the best way to trade weekly options using NT. Through NT, I can connect to Ameritrade to get the stock, ie aapl. I load my charts (just as i did when trading ES). Then on another screen, I bring up think or swim and the weeklys. I want to try to papertrade using my alerts on the NT chart. Is this the best set-up to try to accomplish this?

Another approach

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Although I am not familiar with what you are asking, I have traded options for over 15 years and you might find something in one of these threads that you can use to become a successful trader in options.
Good trading.


PS I am enclosing charts for AAPL on a .50 momentum bar chart and $105 call option on .25 momentum bar chart and 110 call option on .25 momentum bar chart.
I have marked the trades as I trade using the CCI indicator and confirmed by 2 green candlesticks and RSI.
The inverse for short trades or buying puts.
The entry is at the close of the bar above the arrows.
#1 entry at $4.46 to max of $8.50.
#2 entry at $3.52 to max of $5.20.
Hope it helps.
