    Does anyone know the secret for getting the large contract (250) futures options quotes in QCharts? I have followed the QCharts directions per the help file and researched the symbology on the CME, nothing works.

    I can get the ES quotes up, but not the large contract.

  2. Isn't is in this format?

    CME:CSU980 = Sept Calls 980 strike
    CME:pSU980 = Sept Puts 980 strike

    That works...thanks AA.

    I was adding the D for the year 03. According to QCharts, that is required after the Month, guess not. I see also that the first digit gets dropped for 4 digit strikes.

    Thanks Again.
