    Anyone know if/when IB will add NYMEX/COMEX options as a choice for market data? They started trading electronically on Globex tonight.
  2. Ticker for CL and NG on TWS?

    Yes, those are for the futures contracts which receive data. I'm looking for the options on those futures contracts. IB says data not available.
  4. Are those the actual symbols?

    I believe CL & NG are the right symbols. Could be wrong if they trade under a different symbol for Globex.
  6. I chatted with IB and they said they don't know when, and to request it via trouble ticket. So I did that.

    I'd assume they'll come up under NG and CL, just like all the other futures options come up under their respective symbol in optiontrader.
