Wildcard for exclude symbols in alerts

Recommended Posts

   Starting to put SPY options on the watchlists, and need a way to exclude them from the percent move scans I use globally.   Too many triggers, as you can imagine . Plus the daily symbols are changing every day (0DTE) so it would be onerous to manually enter these individually.

   Thinking a WILDCARD functionality in the exclude list  ,  (ie  .SPY*)    would do the trick

You're doing this in a scan, you have the SymbolData.Symbol string variable available.  Just check for

SymbolData.Symbol.StartsWith(".SPY") or something.

Like, if you don't want your scan to run on ANY option symbol, just put this at the very start of the scan

    if (SymbolData.Symbol.StartsWith(".SPY"))
