Continuos minidax with IB

Postby Wapi » 26 Apr 2017

Hi all,
in IB Dax futures and miniDax futures has the same symbol and differ just for the multiplier (1 point dax = 25 euros and 1 point minidax = 5 euros).
Having the same symbol I'm not able to build up a custom continuos futures for minidax.
Is there a way to get it :?:
Tnx.

Hello Wapi,

You need to add FDXM symbol root manually and change the root for all Mini DAX futures symbols in QuoteManager. Then create a custom futures using FDXM root and it should work fine.
Note that you will need to change the symbol root to FDXM for all the newly-added Min DAX instruments in future.
