Option Script

Hi All,
I just opened a new account with TOS. I was wondering on writing a script on option spreads. Is there a way to access option bid and ask prices in a a script?

I'm trying to write a script that can show the option (regardless of the stock, strike price or spread as a percentage of the cost of the stock. And then sort this in an ascending order....might be too much to be asking But if anyone has suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hi Bob -

I don't know if the exact info you need/want is available in TOS scripts, but I'd suggest the best place to start is ThinkScripter.com. I found an Option Spread Viewer on there (Option Spread Viewer | ThinkScripter) but don't know if that's close to what you want.

ThinkScripter is a great place to find TOS scripts, etc.

Bit late but I think the bid & ask can be accessed for a Custom Quote Formula:

ask ? Resource Center

bid ? Resource Center
