How to use ThinkorSwim's Spread Hacker


New member
What I'm trying to do is use the Spread Hacker to find spreads between the current weekly (Jan 29th in this case) and options with expirations in the next cycle, like February 5th. How to show current weekly and how to limit calendar difference?

I'm running into two problems:
*) The "days to expiry" field appears to only apply to the near leg of a calendar spread.
*) I cannot seem to get any spreads at all for the current weekly (Jan 29th). If I put the "days to expiry" to 9, it shows no matches.

Any thoughts on how I can accomplish what I'm looking for?
@FBones This would be a question for the support team at TOS... You may be attempting something beyond the capabilities or beyond the statistical logic of the platform...
