Hello

I would like to ask if it is possible to download ASCII data for the CBOE Mid-Term Volatility Index ( Symbol: VXMT) from the following CBOE website into WL:

https://www.cboe.com/publish/ScheduledTask/MktData/datahouse/vxmtdailyprices.csv

The reason why I ask about downloading from this website is, that Yahoo and other data providers don't have historical data for VXMT, but I need this symbol urgently for a strategy.

Thanks in advance

I'll take a look if it can be integrated into the CBOE provider (that I assume you're using even though it's never mentioned and you didn't post it under the extension's own forum) and let you know ASAP.

VXMT is to be added in next release of the CBOE provider.
