Can we access Advance/Decline for SP500 Sectors?

Looking at TD Ameritrade website, I see they show the advance decline for the sp500 sectors. I use Add/Decline for the overall SP500 every day... but I'd like to build an indicator that shows the A/D for each sector. Does anyone know if we can get this data in TOS? Pic attached.

Yea thanks. Stinks there’s no sector advance decline. I guess they’re just getting the % change of the stocks. Which we can’t really do in TOS without a lot of manual labor.
 
I use AD and Cumulative tick to look at potential trend changes in SPX for trading options. Would like to work on an indicator that can show the individual sector AD as some move the SPX more than others.
 
You could probably just look for improvement/deterioration in the sector indexes themselves relative to the performance of the major index, with a focus on the heaviest weighted. Beyond that really, the data you've requested is not carried as chartable symbols as far as I know. Simplicity is usually best though; people always wonder what else they can add, rarely do they ask what can be removed. Personally, I've found its best to stick to the raw formatted broad based exchange internals, and not even try to make indicators out of them, but just read them myself. The more exotic, specific, and granular you get with internals, typically the less effective they become, at least in my experience.

You're probably right!
 
Both. But I stick with SPX about 80% of the time.

I leave a TOS window open at all times showing the Volume AD, AD, and Cumulative tick for Nasdaq, NYSE, SP500
You can access and detach multiple "Index Watch" windows (Marketwatch tab --> Visualize subtab) which show A/D with Volume, Capital, and P/C ratio on custom watchlists. You could have as many as you need (in theory), you'll just have to create the watchlists to use. I don't think you can chart it as an indicator though.
