Look up a symbol from the options window

To look up an options symbol from the options window:

  1. Enter the underlying symbol name in the Symbol lookup field. You can select the underlying symbol name from the auto-suggest list that appears as you enter the name, or continue to manually enter the name, and then press Enter. Level 1 data will be shown for the selected symbol.

  2. Based on your selection, the type, expiry, and strike fields will populate as follows:

    1. The type field will be set to calls/puts. 

    2. The expiry date field will be set to the expiry date closest to the current date. 

    3. The strike field will be set to the value closest to the last price of the underlying symbol. Strike values will be listed in ascending order.  

      Note: the strike price will depend on the expiry date you select.
