Hello,

I am connected to Interactive Brokers (IB) and can download stock instruments.

IB uses SMART routing to obtain quotes and transact stock options trades across 13 different boards.

Thus, although it is possible to designate 1 board (for example: CBOE), it is desirable to designate SMART.

Would you tell me please how to add options instruments (CALLs and PUTs) for IB. I have searched the S# Data documentation and am unable to find instructions.

Thank you very much,

Craig

Thank you very much. This worked. I had mistakenly tried to specify the options contract as a type of Derivative. Instead, following your instructions, I specified "Type=option" under the <General> tab
