IB options on futures symbol

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by bundlemaker, Apr 13, 2003.

  1. Just starting playing around with option chain pages. It seems like there is a bug. After you enter a symbol into the underlying box in the underlying portion of the window I can't change or add any other underlying symbol. How is this supposed to work.

    Also, if I try entering ES for options on emini's, it says invalid underlying.

    Thanks in advance.
     
  2. You can't do ES on the options chain pages - only equities, not futures.

    Yes there is an bug. I've simply been avoiding opening positions directly on the options chain page.
