YG (mini gold) cannot plot chart

Postby CCC » 04 Oct 2011

Have imported instruments YG using QuoteManager from IB.
However when tried to plot new chart using YG DEC 11. QuoteManager error said no security definition has been found, have tried to edit symbol's and changed various field but still not working.
Thank you for your help in advance.

Hello Sir.
Do you have subscription for this symbol?
Please try to plot the chart for this symbol in IB TWS.
Can you successfully plot any other symbol?

Hello Henry,

Yes I can plot YG in IB TWS. I have data subscription of most common US futures.

I suspect is it the naming of YG future symbol cause the problem, it does not looks like a normal future symbol naming

For example Dec 2011 contract of Gold GC is "GCZ11"
but for YG is "YG DEC 11" with three space between YG and DEC

While importing YG in QuoteManager using IB as data source, the exchange is "NYSELIFFE"
After adding the YG future it became under "NYSE" in the filter windows. Can this different in exchange name cause the trouble?

Thanks in advance

Sir, you need to add Nyse Liffe Exchange.
In Quote manager please go to Tools->Exchanges and ECN's->Add.
You can check the exchange settings in IB TWS (make a right click on the YG DEC 11 Symbol->Contract info->Details) or contact IB directly.
After the exchange is added-please re-add the symbol from the data source (Quote manager->Instrument tab->Add symbol->From data source-> IB).
Now the symbol will be added under NYSELIFFE exchange and should be plotted properly.
