Below is are some option quotes taken directly from the CBOE website. I am wondering what the -E, -4, -8, -A, -B, -I, -J etc..that are at the end of the options symbol mean?

Example: AAPL1513C109-E

More examples:

No hyphen or letter present = Composite

E = CBOE Chicago Board Options Exchange
I = BATS
J = NASDAQ OMX BX
O = NASDAQ OMX
P = NYSE Arca
X = PHLX Philadelphia Stock Exchange

  • $\begingroup$ This was hugely helpful. What is a 'Composite' price? $\endgroup$ – bcf Jan 11 '17 at 21:43
