Hello StockFetcher suport

I think the optionable stock filter is not working quite right.

Symbol BABA is most definitely optionable but won't show up on this simple scan

Fetcher[price is between 75 and 80
stock is optionable
]


take the optionable argument line out and it shows in the listing
This is the only one I found - but didn't look too much more.
This one took a bit of time to find. It was not showing up in my scan and I knew it was optionable
Thanks for your help

The link below shows option info for BABA.

Mactheriverrat,
The suggested change still doesn't pick up BABA in the scan. Thanks though
In checking a little more, these optionable symbols are missing from the $75 to $80 list as well.
BABA
EPC
GUSH
PNQI
TREE
TSO
WBA

If you use SF to scan for optionable stocks be aware you're going to miss a lot of them
In comparing SF optionable stocks between $10 and $300 ...
SF shows 2563 and another scan service shows 3560
That's an error of 997 missed symbols just in this price range.
SF hasn't posted a reply to this so looks like they aren't able to fix it.

SF support, is there a chance the problem with missing optionable symbols will be fixed?
