TOS Options Times & Sales

On the Trade Tab > Options Time & Sales Tab…Can you confirm what the color codes indicate?  For example, if a transaction quantity is highlighted IN RED (Calls or Puts) does this mean they were sold? And vice versa, if they are highlighted GREEN, were they Bought? I noticed they can be white, red, or green on the Quantity and Purple or Blue on the Option column. Any clarification, would be great as to understating if these are being bought or sold…thx!

Since I don’t have any of my own material published on this topic I will link you directly to the resource from Thinkorswim.

In short, the greens are traded at the ask, the reds traded at the bid, and the yellows traded between the bid and ask. The colors purple and blue merely indicate whether the contract was a call or a put.
