TFZ8 - New Russell Mini contract on ICE

Postby WarEagle » 19 Sep 2008

Hey guys, is anyone having trouble charting the new E-mini Russell contract on ICE? i have it set up in QM, and it is collecting data, but I cannot get the contract to chart in MC. It says "no symbol found."

anyone else having this problem? thanks

Hi WarEagle,

This isn't for you. You have probably already done everything I am about to show. This post is for people seeing the post subject and saying, "Man oh Man, I have that same question!"

This example uses eSignal as data supplier. I don't know anything about IB data. I am actually biting my tongue about people who use IB data and autotrade through MC.

Anyway...

In QuoteManager:
1. Add ICI as new exchange. (see attached 01a, 01b)
2. Find Symbol (see attached 02)
3. Add Symbol (see attached 03)
4. Editing symbol should not be necessary (see attached 04a, 04b, 04c)
5. Open chart to check work (see attached 05)

Hope that helps,

Hi,
Has anyone figured out how to chart TFZ8 from IB ???
I got it to add the symbol in the quote manager and it collects data just fine. The symbol on IB is the NYBOT exchange instead of the ICE exchange.
Thanks

Hi,
IB kicks this message back the symbol is not found. It is looking for RUT as the symbol yet when I add symbol in the QM the symbol loads as TF
Any ideas ?
Thanks

Dear Thomas,

Upgrade to 4.0 beta 3 and you will be able to plot the TFZ8 symbol from IB. Please see the attached screenshot.

Regards.
