Rithmic - How to Enter Option Symbol

View Count: 1516

I wanted to trade an option on the british pound futures. The symbol in Rithmic is:

6BU3 P1510.CME

It's a 1.51 Strike put expiring Sept 6, 2013.

I tried entering

6BU3-P1510-CME
6BU3P1510-CME

but SC wasn't able to find the symbol. What is the correct way to view the chart for this symbol?

---

Also this is one case where I have to run R|Trader side by side with SC because I don't know where to find the option symbol names in SC.

It would useful if SC could have a window that shows all the options like they do in R|Trader and most other platforms (see attached)

This would be the symbol format to use:

6BU3 P1510-CME

One thing you need to be certain of is to determine how many spaces between the 3 and P. You need to verify how many spaces there should be. You may want to try 2 spaces or more.

We will see about getting list of options from Rithmic to choose a symbol from.

What this means is that there is no historical data being provided for the option symbol. Data received in real-time will be charted though.
