    S&P 500 Index Options

    Hi,

    IBKR offers S&P500 Index call and put options. I am unable to pull the options chain on NT8. How do I go about setting it up on NT8?

    IB uses the ticker SPXW Expiry Put/Call Strike.

    Regards
    Kay Wai

    Hello Kay,

    Thank you very much for your post.

    At the current time, Interactive Brokers only supports trading Equities and Futures options through the API. Index options unfortunately do not receive real-time data or can be traded through this connection at this time.

    For a full list of supported instruments, please take a look at the chart below:

    Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to let me know!

      Hi Manfred,

      I asked as I was able to pull spx's option chain on the tws platform but couldn't pull it on nt8's option chain.

      It would seem like tws is good to go with spx options.

      Regards

        Hello,

        To confirm, are you loading the instrument as ^sp500 within the option chain window?

          Hi Ryan,

          I tried ^SP500, SP500, SPX and SPXW. None of them work.

          Regards

            Hello Kay,

            Thank you very much for your reply.

            Not all products Interactive Brokers offers through TWS are also available through the API. Data for index options, for example, is not submitted through the API and is not received by NinjaTrader.

            As this is a limitation of the underlying API, the platform itself cannot circumvent this.

            Options for Equities and Futures instruments do receive data and should not cause this issue.

            Please let us know, should you have any further questions!

                I am trading SPY Options on NT8 using IB API.

                Works fine.

                  I was referring to the index options while you are referring to the etf options. Different thing.
