Access symbol map programatically (IQFeed to IB)

Postby mindozas » 22 Sep 2012

Hello,

I have symbol mapping set up for oil futures and manual chart trading is working as expected (IQFeed chart symbol QCLX12 mapped to IB CLX2).

Bars.Info.ASymbolInfo2 only returns IQFeed symbol info, which I cannot use to place orders from the strategy. How do I get broker symbol info from chart's Bars.Info.ASymbolInfo2 ?

Thanks!
Mindozas

Hello Mindozas,

Unfortunately there is no such feature at the moment.
You can forward the broker instrument name to the strategy by specifying it in the study inputs.
