How to find out what exchange a stock is listed on?

I'm using Coarse and Fine universe selection, but I don't want OTC or other listed stocks.

There doesn't appear to be a way I can see to know which exchange a symbol is listed on. I tried CoarseFundamental.Market but it just returns "usa." I expected "NASDAQ" or "NYSE." I also noticed that the SecuritiesExchange class has no Name property which is also a bummer.

Any idea on how I can find out the name of the exchange a stock is listed on?

We dont have OTC stocks, there is no code way to know what exchange its

listed on in bar mode. In tick mode the ticks are flagged. See the tick docs

Jared Broad thanks for the reply. That's too bad. Is there a list of the exchanges used for the main universe selection?

Morningstar symbols cover the NYSE, NASDAQ and BATS exchanges. You can get the exchange ID in fine universe selection with x.SecurityReference.ExchangeId. 

"NAS" for NASDAQ,

"ASE" for NYSE Amex Equities.

"BATS" for bats exchange. 

def FineSelectionFunction(self, fine):
    for x in fine:
if x.SecurityReference.ExchangeId == "NAS":
# find stocks listed in NASDAQ

Jing Wu thank you for the reply. I noticed in some testing it's picking up OTC tickers, like $DCTH from 2017 for example. In the previous comment it was indicated that OTC isn't included, so I'm not sure now. Basically I do not want any OTC tickers at all, I just want NASDAQ (and variants, like CM and GM etc.) and NYSE.

Before September 2017, DCTH(Delcath Systems, Inc) was traded in NASDAQ. Therefore, data for DCTH is available from 10/2001 to 9/2017. You can check the data in the data explorer

To filter stocks only in NASDAQ and NYSE, you can use 

def FineSelectionFunction(self, fine):
stocks = [x for x in fine if x.SecurityReference.ExchangeId == "NAS" or x.SecurityReference.ExchangeId == "ASE"]
