ETF vs Stock

Hey, not sure if this is a newb question but I couldn't find any documentation on this... Is there any way to detect whether a security is a stock or an ETF? Like say I want to filter out ETFs and only add individual stocks to my Universe. Is that possible?

If you don't have any external source with the list of ETFs, you can use HasFundamental member in Coarse Fundamental:

class CoarseFundamental {
public long Volume; // Traded shares
public decimal DollarVolume; // Traded shares x Price
public decimal Price; // Yesterday close price
public Symbol Symbol; // Asset symbol
public bool HasFundamentalData; // Whether it has fundamental
}

Since ETFs do not have fundamental data. However, this property was not created for that purpose, it is a flag to be used when using fine fundamental selection.
