I was reading an article on a website that referenced a tool that would allow screening on optional stocks. Specifically, it screened for stocks that trade at least 1,000 options a day and those options have an average bid/ask spread of less than 2%

While I know that the bid-ask data is not available, is there a way in W/L to find stocks that trade "a lot" of options on average?

Thanks for the help.
Wishing W/L users a prosperous new year.

No feature for that in Wealth-Lab.

Thanks for the New Year's wishes, and the same for you!

Steve, and here's something for you to start with:

1. In the strategy's References... dialog, add references to System.Core, System.Xml and System.Web.
2. Make sure that HtmlAgilityPack.dll exists in WLP main folder (comes with many extensions like Community.Components).

Please log in to see this code.
