hi,
I am using esignal feed.
The symbol Root for Mini Nikkei 225 contract traded on OSM is NI225_M

As can be seen from the attached file, under "Add Custom Futures" within the Symbol Root listbox, NI225_M is NOT available .

Only NI225 which is the big nikkei is available.

Please rectify.

Hi aljafp,

OpenTick does not provide volume for some of their symbols.


That may be true for other symbols...
But for the symbols i stated, i am able to get volume using NT....

So the problem is with Multicharts !!!
