InteractiveBrokers: error downloading Eurodollar futures

Postby danilo » 22 Oct 2010

I have problem downloading expired Eurodollar futures. For example when I try to download the following Future: GEU0, QuoteManager display the following error:

[10/22/2010 13:25:00] Data request for GEU0 GLOBEX FUT USD 2500 1 Day Trade [ 08/24/2010 16:00:00 - 10/21/2010 16:00:00 ] (Id= 1000035)
[10/22/2010 13:25:00] TWS error message: Id= 1000035; code= 200; description= The contract description specified for GEU0 is ambiguous;\nyou must specify the multiplier.


in effect the description In QuoteManager is: USD SEP10 GE Futures GEU0 MULT:2500

please, could you check ?

regards,
Danilo

Hi Danilo,

Developers checked it on our end and confirmed it is a bug. We will soon provide a dll with the fix. I will post it to forum once it is available.

Thank you
