Set alerts for large short-term expiry options on Time and Sales screen?

Hello,

I am trying to find out if there’s a way to create an alert for when a large, (let’s say +$200,000) , short-term option order comes through on the Time and Sales screen. I’ve realized these types of orders are often a reliable precursor to a significant move.I currently just have the filter to only show orders for the closest expiry contract, and above 100 qty.

Recently I’ve seen this hope accurate with DIS, SHOP, HD, just to name a few.

I contacted the ToS help desk, and they were not able to provide and solutions, which leads me to believe this may have to be done through a 3rd application...?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Regards
Doug

You can certainly use the Filter option under Quantity to only show large values (whether that is <1,000 or <5,000, etc.). But I don't think you can set alerts for this.

@BenTen is right - there is no access to time and sales from ThinkScript so alerts to extract that sort of data is not possible.

@BenTen Is it possible to look at the entire Time and Sales data for the whole day? It only shows the last few minutes.
