FIrst, if you're trading options, you probably have a broker that has option pricing, index or otherwise. The question becomes, who's your broker and is there a WealthLab provider that connects to it?

Second, what do you mean? Are you asking about Bid/Ask pricing "now". Or historical data that you can use for a strategy backtest?

The second answer is the same as the first. However, no one provides historical option pricing for expired contracts. But if you start downloading data for all the option contracts you're interested in "today", you can use it in WealthLab for backtesting now and in the future.

Finally, WealthLab has a feature to create synthetic data for contracts using Black-Scholes. If you know the I.V. for the contract, it can be quite accurate. For more, see Backtest and Auto-Trade Options with WealthLab
