DTN IQ FEED Refresj Contract Description?

Postby mefTrader » 19 Sep 2012

Guys,

Is there an automatic way for the Description Field of a contract say "@ES#" to keep contract of the current contract trading period?

When I launch DTN IQ Feed Diagnostic tool and test "@ES#" and look under the "Symbol Lookup COM" tab the description is accurate but the description field in Quote Manager is way out of date

Q:"How come CTRL+R" does not update the field? as when I do this I see that the data feed on the chart is correct but the contract description is wrong?

Any ideas to fix this?

Similarly for other continuous contracts - @CT#, @SB# etc... for example

Hello MefTrader,

Description Field should be updated manually or the instrument should be re-added from the data source to update the description.

OK that is the way now - anyway to change it for the future i.e when CTRL+R reloads the new continuous contract data to incorporate the new contract period for rollover to refresh the description field too - seems it is already available just needs to be refreshed?

Thanks

These are two separate things that are not connected.
Ctrl+R reloads the data, not contract info. To reload contact info re-add the intrument.
