Symbol Naming Conventions :


Future Symbols :


All Future Symbols are back-adjusted Futures i.e. all Future Symbol have I,II and III in the end to denote Current Month Series, Near Month Series and Far Month Series, resp.. e.g. NIFTY-I, NIFTY-II, NIFTY-III, RELIANCE-II, etc..


  If you want to see any specific Futures Series, this is possible. For example, if you want to see Futures Series of Nifty for the month June 2013, you can enter symbol name as NIFTY13JUNFUT. However please remember that you should not load 2 symbols which mean same symbol - at the same time i.e. in the month of June 2013, you should not have NIFTY13JUNFUT as well as NIFTY-I in our data downloader at the same time. If this happens, it will stop realtime data download of the prior symbol.



Options Symbols (Index and Stock Options) :

Index and Stock Options start with the name of the underlying (in capital letters), followed by year (2 digits), month (3 characters), strike price and type (2 characters) - EXACTLY in this sequence. See examples below.


Example 1: NIFTY13JUN5500CE means Index Option of symbol NIFTY, for the year 13 (i.e. 2013), for the month June (JUN), for the strike price 5500 and the type is Call European.


Example 2 : BANKNIFTY13SEP10700PE means Index Option of symbol BANKNIFTY, for the year 13 (i.e. 2013), for the month September (SEP), for the strike price 10700 and the type is Put      European.


Example 3 : RELIANCE13JUN1000PE means Stock Option of Symbol RELIANCE, for the year 13 (i.e. 2013), for the month June (JUN), for the strike price 1000 and the type is Put European.


Example 4 : SBIN13JUN2150CE  means Stock Option of Symbol SBIN, for the year 13 (i.e. 2013), for the month June (JUN), for the strike price 2150 and the type is Put European.



Currency Derivatives :


For Currency Derivatives, we provide back-adjusted Futures data for FIRST 3 contracts i.e. -I, -II,-III in the end to denote Current Month Series, Near Month Series and Far Month Series, resp e.g. USDINR-I.CD, USDINR-II.CD,USDINR-III.CD.... and after first 3 contracts, you will need to add contract wise for all remaining symbols e.g. USDINAR14MARFUT.CD, USDINAR14APRFUT.CD


Options Symbols :

Index and Stock Options start with the name of the underlying (in capital letters), followed by year (2 digits), month (3 characters), strike price and type (2 characters) - EXACTLY in this sequence. See examples below.


Example 1: USDINR13DEC60CE.CD means Index Option of symbol USDINR, for the year 13 (i.e. 2013), for the month December(DEC), for the strike price 60 and the type is Call European.


Example 2 : USDINR13DEC60PE.CD means Index Option of symbol USDINR, for the year 13 (i.e. 2013), for the month December (DEC), for the strike price 60 and the type is Put European.



MCX Symbols :

The format is <UNDERLYING><YEAR IN 2 DIGITS><MONTH IN 3 CHARACTERS><FUT>.MX
Example 1 : CRUDEOIL12DECFUT.MX means Futures Contract of underlying CRUDEOIL, for the year 2012, for the month DECember.

Example 2 : GOLDPETAL13JANFUT.MX means Futures Contract of underlying GOLDPETAL, for the year 2013, for the month JANuary.




  Currently we do not support back-adjusted futures i.e. continuous format symbols like CRUDEOIL-I, CRODEOIL-II is not possible now. They are likely to get added in future versions.



  Remember that symbol name has to be in CAPITAL letters without any space in-between the letters. So NIFTY-I is correct symbol but Nifty-i, NIFTY-i, nifty-i are all incorrect symbol names and although they will be added, they will not fetch any data.

  Remember that I,II, III are I (I as in Indigo). Ensure that you put them correctly and not 1,2 or 3.


  You can also download readymade Futures Symbol list from here.



Once you know the symbol name, you will need to follow procedure as described in every charting platform to add symbols and see their data.


Important Note : Global Indices Futures (DJIA and S&P500) do not expire on last Thursday - like other symbols. Hence back-adjusted futures do not work with them in realtime. Please use their original names like DJIA13FEBFUT, S&P50013FEBFUT, etc. to get their realtime data.
