Hi guys,

I'm wondering if it is possible to set up an SMS alert for when my Probability OTM reaches a certain level?

Many thanks

yes, make the scanner and then save the scanner and then make a watchlist and import the scanner, and then set the alert for the watchlist. you can youtube each step. the scan below would be the scan setting.

I went to make a scanner for the Russell 2000 and the Option dropdown in the "add a filter" section does not exist on my account, nor is there a dropdown option for Prob OTM.

Could it be that I currently don't have permission to access this on my current account?

@davstr The easiest way to find out is to open a support ticket in ThinkorSwim and ask if you can access it. I don't see why you wouldn't, though.

Thanks guys, will post back when ToS responds
Let us know how long it took you to get a response, appears there are many people rightfully complaining about the current market restrictions. Ive never seen anything like this before. if restricting buyable shares not using margin (while others are allowed to buy) isn't manipulation then i don't know what is.

Blanket restrictions are put in place to protect the overall liquidity of the markets and to protect the brokerages... I know some people feel like they're being singled out or being picked on en masse but that is simply not the case... This will all be investigated and changes, if needed, will be implemented... When in doubt, steer clear of the fray...

Agree its best to stay clear, IMO there all the sides failed to properly address risk management from the client side to broker, to fund manger, to market maker thus creating a mess.

No response guys, I've placed online tickets and had an online chat window that sat open for most of the day. Feels like the old ToS support days are over until the Schwab integration has been completed in full. Rumour has it that it could take up to 3 years.

UPDATE: As I suspected, my paper trading account status is what is limiting access to Options scans. U.S. support for ToS has been absolutely horrible. No response whatsoever online through the app or through Ameritrades list of support contacts. The fastest way to get a response with a live human is the through the ToS Canadian support number: 1 877-348-6722
