    Anyone else having trouble with NVDA options in TWS this morning?

    When I logged in, I get an alert "No option for underlying: NVDA." Cannot bring up an Options Trader window on it. Existing NVDA options in my portfolio are showing with the options symbol and not in underlying mode.

    NVDA had a stock split on Tuesday. Existing options for NVDA that were purchased before the split now expire to a stock basket that has the same value as a share of pre-split stock. The symbol for these options is changed to UWV. New options on the current NVDA stock should be available shortly.

    Ah, I suspected this had something to do with it. I thought in the past (with MO post-KFT spin off), it still showed under MO but maybe that worked like this too and my memory is foggy.

    Anyway, I'll close out the ticket I had opened on the topic tomorrow when I next log onto TWS. Thx.
