The standard US equity option naming scheme is a 15-character code used to refer to a specific option contract. An accompanying ISIN is necessary to identify the underlying equity.
The US equity option naming scheme consists of six parts:
• a two-digit number (the last two digits of the expiration year)
• a two-digit number (the expiration month)
• a two-digit number (the expiration day)
• C(all) or P(ut)
• a five-digit number (dollars in strike price, between 00000-99999)
• a three-digit number (decicents in strike price, between 001-999, but usually ending in 0 or 5)
