"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

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.

GOOG1707G930 July 7, 2017
GOOG1714G930 July 14, 2017
GOOG1721G930 July 21, 2017
