Add / Fix option chain to raw log



Hi all,

I would like to see a menu option from option chain to raw log (without having to open an Intraday chart).

So I will use QQQ as an example.

Right mouse click option chain for QQQ (ctrl-O)

Select any active option.

Right mouse click and open - Raw Data / T&S for .QQQ_220819C320 (ctrl-R) (select none)

No output in Raw Data.

Close Raw Data.

Open Intraday chart for same option - Intraday Chart for .QQQ_220819C320 (ctrl-I)

Now Right mouse click and open - Raw Data / T&S for .QQQ_220819C320 (ctrl-R) (select none)

Raw data now populates.

Just would like to skip the intraday chart since the menu option is already there.

the reason for that is that

1) raw data is a passive window - it only shows you data that is already in MT. That is not going to change

2) The Level I quotes on the options in the Option Chain are not stored. Would be a lot of data to store especially as you scroll and MT subscribes/unsubscribes from visible symbols and also more importantly, if option chain is from a different source than portfolio, storing that data can cause conflicts.

Opening the chart forces a backfill, which is what you are seeing. Instead of closing raw data, opening chart etc,  just backfill right from the raw data. Either hit CTRL+B or right click and select Backfill from the popup menu - top of the menu
