i found a thinkscript that allows you to "export" historical data from thinkorswim. it takes
a bit of work to get a valdi csv file but a little automation will fix that.

Jim:
Thanks for the post! I looked at this strategy csv file mechanism in the past but discarded as being very inflexible with it's fixed fields. However, notice what he does with the "name" parameter! Sweet! That allows you to place pretty much any info you want in the file (we can embed additional fields and data within the "name" string! {Embed your desired content within the name string}

i didn't notice that till you wrote about it. what do envision putting in there, an indicator value, iv?

Jim:
Have not determined what I will do yet! It could be a feature add to some existing ThinkScripts for extracting data for external processing. I hope to be able to devote some time in the future to see if this can be of value for me.
If I get time to look into this more, I'll try to post what I find. I hope you will do the same.
