I'm still getting used to the structure of programs in QuantConnect. I wondered if someone could help me with a couple of the fundamentals with combining Equity and Option trading.

I have set a Coarse and Fine Universe which defines the equities I am buying / selling. I would also like to add options to this that may or may not fall within the universe - for example, VXX.

Can I use self.AddOption("VXX") alongside self.AddUniverse(self.CoarseSelectionFunction, self.FineSelectionFunction) ? It does not appear to be working. If not, is there a way to manually add this option ticker so I can handle all my equity and option trading within the same OnData?

Thanks for your help
