    I'm getting bid 154.5 and ask of 158.9 thru MarketXLS but the real numbers from Fidelity Active Trader are bid 192.7 and ask 196.4 for the December 17 $880 Call (GOOGL171215C880). Price has not moved now for a week thru MarketXLS.

    I tried it and I get different numbers but they are still not correct. GOOG171215C00880000 brings in 160.6 bid 163.6 ask, but Fidelity is showing 188.50 bid and 192.70 ask, still far off. I looked at the Nasdq site and the prices seem to be off there also.

    Just simple math will tell you that the MarketXLS prices are off since GOOGL is trading at 1069, the 880 call is $189 in the money, so why would anyone sell it for less than $189?

    I'm having the same issue. It's not just options for one stock. I'm getting "false signals" regularly because of the discrepancy from actual values vs MarketXLS returned values. I hope this gets resolved so I don't have to switch data providers.
