"There is no doubt that IQFeed is the best data provider. I am very satisfied with your services. And IQFeed is the only one that I would recommend to my friends. Now, most of them are using your product in China." - Comment from Zhezhe
"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
"IQ feed works very well, does not have all of the normal interruptions I have grown used to on *******" - Comment from Mark

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.
