I'm aware that the standard account has a maximum of 500 stocks that can be subscribed to at any given time. Please can I ask if individual options (such as CPRI2209L56, CPRI2209L57, CPRI2209L57.5 etc) each count against the 500 limit?

Asking as I'm currently subscribing to ~400 stocks at any given time, and have started to watch option chains for some of the stocks in Excel via XLQ at the same time and wanted to understand if I need to ensure I don't go over the 500 overall limit.

Many thanks in advance

If you're doing a Level 1 follow, then yes - each individual option symbol counts as one "symbol" against your limit, even if they have the same root symbol.
