Option symbology changes to reflect Options Industry Council new format
The OIC symbol format changes provide a common sense method for option ticker symbols. Several format styles were recommended. AIQ has adopted the following compliant format for options symbols:
|Underlying ticker symbol||Month/Year||Strike||Call/Put|
For example the Goldman Sachs [GS] May 10 170 call symbol is GS May10 170 C
AIQ Charts real-time, AIQ RTAlerts and AIQ Quotes Barometer will accept the new symbol format. The first screen shot below shows AIQ Quotes/Barometer with several option tickers in the new format, the second screen shot shows the same tickers in AIQ RTAlerts.
