Hello,

The CBOE publishes a list of optionable stocks/etfs that offer penny increments on options bid/ask spreads, and generally have very narrow option spreads.

It would be nice to have either OT or OS support the Penny Pilot list, as published by CBOE. Either as an import list into the Focus list, or as a OmniScan list similar to the index lists available for use as initial Starting Population selections,

For now, the workaround is to create a new MySymbols list, rename it appropriately, select the blank list as the active Focus List, cut and paste the Penny Pilots list from Excel to Notepad and save, File | Import the .txt file into the current Focus List. (Just for my memory and to aid anyone interested,,,)

Thanks for consideration.

Keith

And also, the workaround includes the need to regularly update the list ...

Which "should" be done automatically if N offers it in their bag of tricks. Note that many of the existing lists are nowhere near up to date (MG for sure, likely some others are at least somewhat behind current status)
