"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum

"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim

How do I lookup the symbols for the week SPX options? (reference: http://www.cboe.com/products/weeklys-options/available-weeklys)

I see the docs here:
http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/OptionChainsviaTCPIP.cfm

And they describe this command:
CEO,[Symbol],[Puts/Calls],[Month Codes],[Near Months],[BinaryOptions],[Filter Type],[Filter Value One],[Filter Value Two],[RequestID]<CR><LF>
Request an Index or Equity Option Chain from IQFeed.

but the docs only refer to monthlies.

Thanks!

The weekly items are included in those returns. The expiration date is included in the symbol. Here is an example of symbols for a July request on GOOG.
