@Pabloadmin I'm not sure we can access all of the historical data for the option chain... Your code works in a Watchlist for Stocks but not for Options as a Custom Watchlist Column... I recall trying to manually calculate ImpVol previously without success... The overall IVP is available in the Todays Option Statistics however... You might want to check with TOS Technical Support on this...

That is a Standard column that can be added using the Customize feature... Click on the Layout dropdown and select Customize... The Column name is Imp Vol... I have it displaying in my option chain...

Thanks, i know this column but it's a implied volatility and i want a iv percentile.

Some thing like this code:

def vol = impVolatility();
rec data = if !isNaN(vol) then vol else data[1];
def hi = highest(data,252);
def lo = lowest(data,252);
plot perct = (data - lo)*100 / (hi - lo);

But this code dont work in the option chain, impVolatility() return nan value.

@Pabloadmin - how do you interpret it?
 
@mansor That code actually came from another topic here in the forums that has several different scripts for IVP for Stocks... It essentially calculates based on 252 periods, which is a years worth of trading days...
