Examples

collapse all

Create Money.Net connection c using a user name and password.

username = 'user@company.com';
pwd = '999999';

c = moneynet(username,pwd);

Retrieve option symbols o for the symbol IBM®.

s = 'IBM';

o = optionchain(c,s);

o is a cell array of character vectors. Each character vector is an option symbol.

Display the first three option symbols.

o(1:3)
ans =

  3×1 cell array

    'O:IBM\16Q13\130 .0'
    'O:IBM\16E27\148 .0'
    'O:IBM\16Q20\138 .0'

Retrieve current data for the first option symbol o(1) and display it. Specify fields f for describing the option symbol:

  • Option symbol description

  • Option symbol strike

  • Option symbol expiration date

symbol = o(1);
f = {'Description','Strike','Expiration'};

d = getdata(c,symbol,f)
d = 

           Symbol                   Description            Strike    Expiration
    ____________________    ___________________________    ______    __________

d is a table with one row of data. The data contains the option symbol name in the first column and a column for each specified field f.

To retrieve intraday data, use timeseries.

Close the Money.Net connection.
