Mini Russell 2000 Symbol for Zenfire in MC

Postby sdewar » 07 Dec 2010

Hi - Does anyone know what the correct symbol is for the Mini Russell 2000 December 2010 contract is with Zenfire so I can get this data working in MC? MC Support installed Rithmic Trader and I looked up the symbol as - TF FMZ010! but this is not working.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Dear sdewar,

Please make sure that there are two spaces between "TF" and "FMZ010!". The exchange should be NYBOT. If the problem persists, please come to our Live Chat between 6:30AM and 2PM EST.

Hi - There are 2 spaces in the Symbol. Here is some entries from the Zenfire Log;

[12/07/2010 13:42:50] TF FMZ010!.NYBOT: The subscription to this instrument has been aborted. Dependent network services and/or data were not available. no data
[12/07/2010 13:42:50] No security definition has been found: Symbol= TF FMZ010!;Trade;NYBOT;FUT;;
[12/07/2010 13:42:50] TF FMZ010!.ICE NY: The subscription to this instrument has been aborted. Dependent network services and/or data were not available. no data
[12/07/2010 13:42:50] No security definition has been found: Symbol= TF FMZ010!;Trade;ICE NY;FUT;;
[12/07/2010 13:42:50] TFZ10.ICE NY: The subscription to this instrument has been aborted. Dependent network services and/or data were not available. no data
[12/07/2010 13:42:50] No security definition has been found: Symbol= TFZ10;Trade;ICE NY;FUT;;

I am pushed for time this week so is it possible you can just let me know what the correct settings are (I assume you have a Zenfire test connection at your end).

Thanks

Dear sdewar,

The correct symbol name is TF FMZ0010! (two zeros between Z and 10), NYBOT exchange.

Ok thanks guys I have it working now.

Just a suggestion can you put in a feature request to be able to look up symbols from Zenfire in MC? Also it would help if you did some kind of symbol map to make the symbols a little more user friendly. I know NT does this for Zenfire Symbols.

Cheers
