#### Quotemedia’s option Symbols are structured as follows…

*Example: 2011 Jan 22 20.00 Call for Microsoft Corp. Symbol : @MSFT 110122C00020000 @ : All Options begin with the ” @ ” character.*

*MSFT (and two spaces) : Six character option root symbol using any prefix/suffix as defined by the OSI definition; left-justified, space-padded. In the case where the option root symbol is three characters, it will be followed by three spaces.*

*11 : two least significant digits of the Contract Date year*

*01 : two-digit Contract Date month*

*22 : two-digit Contract Date day of month*

*C : “C” for CALL or “P” for PUT*

*00020 : five-digit whole portion of the strike price; right-justified and padded with zeros on the left; for instance, if the strike price is $26.50, then this field would contain 00026*

*000 : three-digit fractional portion of the strike price; left-justified and padded with zeros on the right; for instance, if the strike price is $26.50, then this field would contain 500*
