Options Database

Has anyone set up a (stock) options database in AmiBroker? If so, are you able to offer any tips (traps) regarding the database setup or data retrieval/charting or manipulation with AFL?

Also, am I correct in assuming that AmiQuote will not retrieve option chain data from Yahoo Finance? (If not, I am aware of Python libraries like yfinance that will download option chain data)

AmiQuote does not offer options quotes.

EOD option data can be downloaded from Yahoo Historical via AmiQuote...

Example Yahoo option symbol:

Ticker Expiration date Call or Put Strike price in dollars Strike price in cents

MS March 19, 2021 C 65 0

MS 210319 C 00065 000

MS210319C00065000

Remember to multiply premium data ("Qty") by 100 in Account Manager.
