Chose underlying mode from the view menu.

On a new row type in Z, LIFFEs symbol for the FTSE future

Then chose Future the date etc.

one last problem !!
I am trying to link IB and sierra, however I am running into problems. I am currently only using the free version to experiment with(this may be the problem).

I am quite sure I have gone through the setup correctly, however when I ask sierra to connect to IB it says
-unable to connect to data feed server-
-is IB TWS software running and is t enabled for socket clients-

i have checked this, everything seems to be in order.

appreciate all help.



Make sure in the IB TWS you have done the following:

Go to "Configure" and select "API" make sure all options are ticked in that category.

Try again and if it is not that then maybe someone else can help as I dont use Sierra,

Good Luck
