Easy way to load the ticker of the members of the S&P500 ?

Postby nlaporte » 17 Apr 2011

Dear all,

Is there an easy way to load the tickers of the members of the S&P 500 (for ex) into MC, using IB as quote-source? I didnt find any topic on that subject.
Thank you very much,
Best,

Nicolas

Interactive Brokers supports adding symbol one by one, or select several contracts with the same root (by holding down SHIFT or CTRL while selecting). If you want to import a list of stocks, you will need to build/find a list of the stocks in CSV (comma-separated value) or Excel format (which you then Save as CSV).

QuoteManager has the option to import a symbol list (QuoteManager > File > Import Symbol List), which will allow you to import this list all at once. The challenge is to either find/create this list first.
