How to add the expired instruments?

Postby Xslim » 23 Jan 2016

I can not add the expired instruments because the option is canceled. Is there any method to add the expired instruments?

The step as below:
1. Open QM
2. Intrument->add symbol->from data sources->IQFeed
3. Future (i want to add QGCZ15, Gold December 2015)

but it does exist the check box of expired symbol.

Add the same contract of 2016 expiration month (for example QGCZ16 for december) and change the date of the symbol in Z15 (from QGCZ16 to QGCZ15) in QM Symbol name, then click "Apply" and "OK".
It will convert the future symbol in the old one and add it to your database
