6E symbol mapping problem

Postby bibulous » 08 Sep 2011

Hi,

I again get a symbol mapping error "Invalid value in field # 55" in the latest MultiCharts 7. I had this in some beta version before the local symbol field had been added (which seems to have gone again).

The mapping error occurs for the EURUSD future with the following mapping:

Chart Symbol
@EU#; Futures; CME; IQFeed

Broker Symbol:
6EU1; Futures; GLOBEX; Interactive Brokers

The ES which has a similar mapping works like a charm...
Is there anything wrong with my mapping settings for the 6E?

Hello Bibulous.
Please change the Symbol mapping for Broker Symbol:
6EU1; Futures; GLOBEX;MIBSX;CME; Interactive Brokers

Thanks, but unfortunately this did not fix it. I am still getting the invalid value in field error.

Please add the symbols from the data source.
In Quote manager go to the Instrument tab->Add symbol->From data source-> IQfeed/IB.
Then in Multicharts please go to this path File-> Broker profiles-> Manage-> IB-> Remove.
After that please add IB profile (New-> IB) in File-> Broker profiles-> Manage.
Then check that the symbol mapping is correct and try to place an order.
