That is the correct symbol for the Dow cash index

Have you connected to IB from the file menu

awood, do you want the symbol for mini dow? You cannot trade the index via IB, it can only be used for reference.

anyway the symbol for mini Dow is YM. On Sierra charts this will need to be YM-200406-ECBOT.

Just for reference the mini dow symbol with MyTrack/Sierra is Q`M for the June contract.
If you need the index charts this can be either INDU, or DJIA.

edit-just realised you want the IB info! - doh!

Thanks for the help so far

I guess i should have said i just want the DOW index in sierra (via IB feed) for reference to compare against the YM futures which i can get no problem. So in general terms i am just looking for the best symbol to use to enable me to chart the Dow Jones Indutrials Index.
