We wanted to create an option symbol format that was easier and more convenient for our customers to use.
College Park, MD (PRWEB) February 24, 2010
To eliminate confusion caused by the varying stock options ticker formats, DTLink Software has created a "neutral" ticker symbol format, supported by their Personal Stock Monitor software, which greatly simplifies reading and writing options ticker symbols, and allows a single ticker format to work with multiple data providers. This was done in response to the recent industry transition to new option symbology, which was initiated by the Options Clearing Corporation, that allows each stock market data provider to create their own internal options ticker symbol format.
"Since many of our customers trade options, we wanted to create an option symbol format that was easier and more convenient for our customers to use than the cryptic internal ticker formats the data services were using.", said Anatoly Ivasyuk, CTO of DTLink Software. "So instead of something like MSQ100220P00030000, customers using Personal Stock Monitor can write MSQ Feb 20 2010 Put 30. The ticker symbol becomes an easy-to-read description of the option, instead of something you have to decipher."
The new options ticker symbol support is available immediately, in the current release of Personal Stock Monitor Gold software.
