    Dear Optuma Team,

    I have been using ThinkOrSwim (TOS) for years. It provides live data for US stocks and Futures.

    The US live stock data is implemented in Optuma.
    The futures live data (history data as well) is missing from Optuma.
    My problem is Spot, Volume Spot and TOS futures data are different but I have to trade data that TOS provides.

    I really appreciate to have real time futures data in Optuma for TOS. Could you please, implement it?

    Thank you,
    Laci

    Hi Laszlo.

    I assume that you are accessing this through TD Ameritrade interface? We’ll have to have a look if we can Map our futures to what they provide. So long as we can map, it should be possible.

    Can you give me some example tickers you would use?

    All the best

    Mathew

    Hello Mathew,

    You are right. I was talking about TD Ameritrade. I always use ThinkOrSwim (TOS) because the base platform is TOS. TD Ameritrade bought that company many years ago…

    Thank you for the possibility to map the TD Ameritrade futures code. TD Ameritrade gives one chart where I see current data (actual month) and historic data in one chart.

    I appreciate if these could be available in Optuma :

    •  /NG (Natural Gas),
    • /PL (Platinum)
    •  /CL  (Crude Oil WTI) /RB (Gasoline) /HO (Heating Oil)
    •  /GC  (Gold)
    •  /SI  (Silver)
    •  /HG  (Chopper)
    •  /PA  (Palladium)
    •  /ZC  (Corn)
    •  /ZS /ZM /ZL (Soybeans, Soybean oil, Soybean meal
    •  /ZW  (Wheat)
    •  /CC  (Cocoa)
    •   /CT (Cotton)
    •   /OG  (Orange juice)
    •   /KC (Coffee)
    •  /SB  (Sugar)
    •   /ZT /ZF /ZN.  (Bonds 2, 5, 10 years)

    Thank you very much,

    Laci

    The whole ThinkOrSwim datafeed would be nice, not just the futures. Thxs.

    We have it in our job system for a developer to look at. One of us will reply here once we know if it is possible.

    All the best

    Hi Matthew,

    I would love this functionality if possible.

    Think or Swim provides live data feed if you enable additional markets similar to how you have done to the equity markets it would mean that we don’t need to subscribe to additional data feeds

    Would you also be able to include the equity futures indices, please

    /ES

    /NQ

    /YM

    /RTY

    Hello Mathew,

    Do you have any feedback or news about the TOS (TD Ameritrade) data feed (futures and all other data)?

     

    Thank you,

    Laci

    Hi Laszlo

    I know the developers were working on it but I have not seen the results yet.

    All the best

    Hi Matthew,

    Is there an ETA on when this may be available by any chance?

    Even a thumb suck estimate would be good

    Thanks

    The work was done for the next major releast of Optuma (1.7 which is not due until the end of the year). I’m just seeing if we can bring it back into the 1.6 release since it is still in Beta. All going well, it will be in Beta by the end of next week.

    That would be fantastic – I’d be happy to be one of your Beta testers

    Thanks so much!

    Hi All,

    Some bad news I’m sorry to say. The TD Futures delivery system is completely different from TD Equities. We’ve had two engineers looking at this for the last couple of days to see if we can shoe-horn the data into the same system but it just will not work without some major changes in Optuma. Given the phase we are in the release cycle of Optuma 1.6, we can not do the work in 1.6.

    We do believe that this would be a great value-add and so we will bundle the work into version 1.7 which is due around the end of the year.

    All the best

    Mathew

    Just an idea. How about giving a try to Tradingview data? As far as I know they are very open minded. They feed a bunch of brokers.
    Besides the US, they provide a ton of international data (delayed and real time as well) based on subscription – very reasonably priced. They could be the ideal data source (futures, equities, crypto, forex – all the works). Thxs!
