    Getting Data Series of an Options contract

    How do I look at the chart of an options contract on NT8?
    i.e.

    SPY Expiring 9 Dec 20 Call option at 369 Strike Price
    I opened the chart SPY201209C369 and there was nothing.

    When I try the same naming convention as with my connection: TD Ameritrade
    with the dot prefix, ".SPY201209C369" I get an invalid instrument error.

    ​​​​​​​Thanks!

    Hello johnnybegoode,

    We would suggest using the Instrument Link feature on the Options Chain Window and to load the symbol on another window like an Order Entry window. The same can be done to open the ticker on a chart.

    Linking the Options Chain window to other windows - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...derentrywindow

    Please note: Options are not supported for NinjaScript use.

    We look forward to assisting.

      Would there be plans for NinjaScript to support options in a future update
      or is it an instrument not possible with NT?

        Hello johnnybegoode,

        Options support for NinjaScript is intended for a future version, but I could not say when Options support for NinjaScript will be available. The Development team is working on some other major tasks so demand for this is being tracked in the short term.

        I have tracked your interest for Options support for NinjaScript in our enhancement request ID SFT-4404. This is an internal number, but for anyone else reading this thread and wishing to have their interest tracked, please let our support staff know that you would like a vote added for this request.

        Feature/Enhancement Request Disclaimer.

        We receive many requests and cannot reasonably implement all requested features or changes. Interest is tracked internally and if enough interest is tracked, it would be weighed against how feasible it would be to make those changes to consider implementing.

        When new features are implemented, they will be listed in the Release Notes page of the Help Guide. The ID number will be different than the internal feature request tracking ID, but the description of the feature will let you know if that feature has been implemented.

        Release Notes - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...ease_notes.htm


        We look forward to assisting.
