thx but i know all this. the problem is that the ticker symbols for the options used in the US are basically worthless here in old europe. i have my account with a german bank and US tickers don*t help here.
so i gave the guy from the bank the ticker of the underlying stock and sent him the screenshot from yahoo options page. he promised me to call back once he knows how to buy them into my account but never did on friday or saturday.
stuff like ULPCV.X does not help whith europe based trading systems. so i'd need help from someone who has once fased the same problem. does anyone know of a site where ticker symbols can be "translated" into our european style numbering system?
