Watch list with Option volume

Hi Team,
I'm looking for a help to add option volume of the stock in my watch list.
Apologies if this option is being already discussed and addressed.

Example : I have watch list : AAPL,TSLA,COIN,SPY
In watchlist (with default columns ), I would like to display extra columns such as like Open interest, Volume of options instead in option hacker scan.

Thanks for the help in advanced.

ToS does not provide the ability to use custom scripts in the Option Hacker.
It does provide the ability to set min / max values on predefined filters such as volume.

That would mean you will need to pick the strike price and expiration date for each ticker. It's not as easy as displaying the overall options volume into a watchlist.

Thanks @BenTen for your quick response.

I'm going through the above posts and got a question.

If I want show only the option contractor which is having a high volume among all the contractors for the given expiry date, is that possible to get it?

Not only in Watch list, if I can show this option in Option hacker also, it should be good.

Thanks.

The ToS platform was created to analyze ONE stock or ONE contract at a time. It is not possible to create a script to look at a group of contracts, stocks, sectors, etc.

You can create your scan based on the example in the link provided above. And then populate a scanned watchlist with the results.

Hey,

I would like to make a watchlist with the criteria here :
  1. Filter out options with skewness below 0.5
  2. Filter out options that are not trading at least 1% below their VWAP
  3. Filter out options with a daily volume below 500 contracts
  4. Include options with time to expiration between 30 and 60 days
But i'm not sure how to do it if by any chance someone can help.

Thank you.

Dynamic watchlists can only be produced by the Option Hacker.
But your dynamic watchlist is not possible because the ToS app does not support custom filters in the Option Hacker.
We are limited to the ability to set min / max values on predefined filters such as volume.
If you can rewrite your filters with min / max values as shown in the below example, you can save the scan to populate your watchlist.
