ThinkorSwim Time and Sales Filter Large Trades

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.

At the moment, the only way you can use the Time and Sales is through the Trade tab. You can adjust the displayed orders using a set of filter provided by ThinkorSwim.

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.

I am trying to learn Time and Sales and thought it would be interesting if there was an indicator that moved in real time based on say 50 or more contracts being bought or sold for futures trading. Say there was a tick indicator that changes colors based on T/S

So when 50+ contracts of say ES are bought an indicator turns green based on your tick size, and when 50 or more are sold you have a red indicator.

Is there anything like that?
