Hello,

I must be creating the symbols for CME Euro FX options incorrectly, as I am not getting a single price quote for any option I try to capture. I am going for ATM and nearest OTM calls and puts.
For example:

@EUZ19P11100 - this is the CME EuroFx futures option December 2019 expiration put strike 1.1100
@EUZ19C11200 - this is the CME EuroFx futures option Decemnber 2019 expiration call strike 1.1200
etc etc

Am I constructing these options symbols correctly? Does iqFeed provide quotes for options on futures? I believe the answer to both is Yes but I never ever receive a single price quote for ANY futures option.

What am I missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Richard

Try:

@EUUZ19P11100
@EUUZ19C11200

Note the extra U after the base @EU, before the month code.

Thank you for your reply I will try that now!
Does that mean for other FX futures options the same rule applies?
Like for JY and GBP?

Yes, that name convention appears to be correct. I'm finding option symbols for:

@JPUJ20P9300 JPY/USD PREMIUM SYLE 2PM FIX APRIL 2020 PUT 9300
@GBUJ20C12400 GBP/USD PREMIUM STYLE 2 PM FIX APRIL 2020 CALL 12400

By the way, I was able to locate these with the IQFeed.net symbol lookup tool at:
