Account not permissioned for Equities...when trading forex..

Postby 3man » 30 Oct 2012

When automated orders are placed they are rejected...see screenshot.

I am using the following IQFeed forex symbols:

EURUSD.FXCM
GBPUSD.FXCM
AUDUSD.FXCM
USDCAD.FXCM

These are not Equities, why is MC seeing them as such?

Thanks

PS...This is a Demo account.

Hello 3man,

You use IQFeed symbols to trade on MB Trading. Most likely something is not set up in symbol mapping. Please check it and if you have any further problems, please attach a screenshot of your MB Trading symbol mapping window.

GOT IT!

Had to change the symbols under MBT from EURUSD.FXCM (IQFeed's symbol) to EUR/USD (MBT's symbol).

Thank you
