TFZ8 issue with MC

Postby Thomas Mann » 22 Sep 2008

Hi,
I had posted a couple questions in this topic below in reference to someone else also asking same question. It seems the latest Beta MC will receive quotes from IB on the new RUT symbol (TFZ8), but when I try to chart it I get a symbol not found issue. I would like to know how to resolve this.
Thanks

Dear Marina,

I have the same problem with TFZ8, starting from the end of september all the Russell's Index futures moved from GLOBEX to NYBOT (now ICE), but there are problems getting quotes from NYBOT (that is not defined in QuoteManager so I had to add the definition). I was able to get historical data from TWS (see screenshoot: TFZ8_TWS.png), also I was able to get the contract details both using QuoteManager that the TWS's .NET sample (see screenshoot: TFZ8_MktData.png), BUT I was UNABLE to get historical data both using QuoteManager that the TWS's .NET Sample (see screenshoot: TFZ8_Request.png).
Please, could you help us to solve the problem.

Regards,
Danilo

P.S.
If I connect the symbol in QuoteManager, I'm able to collect real-time data, but not historical data.

You can find the tool in the TWS's API toolkit, that you can find at the following url: http://individuals.interactivebrokers.c ... entity=llc

Hi Thomas,

To be able to plot the TFZ8 symbol from IB in MultiCharts, please install the latest 4.0 beta 3 version of MultiCharts. The symbol will work there.

Regards.

you can find the tool in the directory:

<TWS Api Root>\TWSAPI_VBSample.NET\bin\Release\TWSAPI_VBSample.exe

The <TWS Api Root> is the root over you have installed the API, for me is "C:\Jts"

Danilo
