IB --> Options chains

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by Optrader, Jan 18, 2002.

  1. Does TWS have the ability to retrieve options chains or must each option symbol (or the underlying, expiration date, and strike price)be typed in manually?

    The "options" tab does not exist in the demo. Further, it appears that the demo does not permit the entry of options.

    Thanks!
     
  2. Yes they do, you select month for the option, and a complete chain selection window pops up.
     
  3. Thanks for the informatioin. Sounds like it will work for me.
