Really Appreciated Your post.

Could you help in tweaking the code little bit.I need to make consolidation bar of 30 min each for 1st 1 hour of market opening  and get the strike price based on it.

Like if current bar.high>previousbar.low,use strike price as previous bar.low  .

I am really facing tough time to get through it.

That's a great start Welly! Since options are minute data I suggest adding minute MSFT. Not sure it'll make a difference as LEAN might automatically add the minute MSFT it needs.

Hi Jared Broad, 

Previously i try to use minutes data in equities and options but it's become very slow. So i start using another approach using OptionChainProvider. 

Is that ok if it's stay daily ?

Hi Welly,

The correct resolution to use for the MSFT stock would be minute. As can be seen in the attached backtest, using daily resolution causes the algorithm to make different trades.

Best,
Derek Melchin
