Hello,

I have just subscribed to the support contract. I do not know how to utilize that contract to obtain support. I presume, based upon information I have seen on this community page, that if I ask a question here, it will be answered by S#. Is that true?

My question is a) is it possible to import a list of symbols (stock tickers) into the securities file in Hydra so I may download data for them from my provider? b) how can I set up Hyrdar to also download options contracts? Here, I wish to download the options contracts prices for the last several years from my data provider. How do I tell Hydra to do that?

Thank you, Craig



Thanks:

Hello

a) https://doc.stocksharp.c...68-8538-4e94820b3659.htm
b) Options like other instrument types can be imported the same way. What do you use as an underlying data source?

Thank you, I appreciate it. I am using Interactive Brokers for my data.

Basically, I want to upload a list underlying instruments to hydra, and receive back data for the underlying instruments as well as their options.

If I import instrument symbol, and run Hydra data download, will I receive back both underlying and options data?
