GTool ancillary reporting (alpha BTool)

For GTool subscribers, please be aware that starting today, this reporting mechanism is being used for the initial BTool reporting. BTool will be likely separated shortly.
Reports listed as "Baby butter" are actually intended for Boxcar entry reports. The "Report Generated" date/time taken from the price snapshot of the option prices and generally will be same as reporting time/date. The Expiration field should be intuitive.
Within the reports, for now, ignore the heading lines until the first line of the report, which appears as "<n> Candidates located for Boxcar term ..."

This is first cut of the reporting, which is expected to change until we settle in on format/content desired.
The reports are scheduled to be produced each trading day at 8AM Pacific, and be run on both RUT and SPX for DTE 10-15 inclusive.
If no candidates are found meeting the minimum criteria used, no report will be emitted for that underlying/DTE!

To understand the report, it is prudent to insure you fully understand the section near the bottom of the reports labeled "CRITERIA Used:".

Enjoy!

Made a late session run for the BTool after improving the sample contingent orders to be compatible with copy&paste to TOS order.

Another tweak to the sample order format. The sample order now is and Advanced 1st tgrs All order, which includes the Entry as well as the first up and down side contingent orders for those that use TOS. I ran the tool after market closed (it used the closing prices at 1:15PM Pacific) for this late test report. Use of the example orders is only for those that want it and the settings chosen match their preference.

I encountered some technical issues resulting in the Boxcar reporting (under baby butter reference) in the GTool using yesterday's closing prices. (was issue collecting realtime data) Corrected the issue, updated the criteria to more closely track that of the boxcar 2.0 guidelines and reran just now. Pardon the inconvenience.

Here is a current list of boxcar candidates on RUT and SPX for 7-20DTE with symmetrical wings (CS and DS of each have common widths). These are html files, and if opened with your web browser may be sorted by whichever column you desire.

the Critera used for each report and a glossary are at the bottom for clarification and transparency. Should you discover an anomaly, please notify me.
