Since one month I am not able to collect data in MC for the 6BU6 GBP future on Globex. It suddenly stopped collecting data on the 13th July and I can't figure out what it is (I thought IB changed something, but I can't find information on it).
I can chart the 6BU6 in TWS and I can see a chart there, but in MC QM is telling me that no security definition has been found.
All the other currency futures work like a charm.
Hopefully someone can help me.

I just tried and got the chart: no problem. Used GBP as root and GLOBEX as exchange in Quotemanager to find 6BU6.
I have created several new symbols (through IB search) and it had no effect. Today after your post I have tried it again and now it works - whatever it was .
All I can say is that I tried searching by root and it worked perfectly well, while trying to lookup this symbol by name doesn't work.
Yes, IB seems to allow the search by root only .
I could find the symbol in QM before, but after I charted it I got the error message. That was the strange thing, but now it's working again so I would say it was not related to MC (although I upgraded to the current beta), but either to IB or my stupidity .
