tws is up and running everything seems to be o.k. only one problem at the moment, I can't find tickers for my required futures.
For the moment, I would just like the tickers for the march and June ftse futures contract.
I also need the ticker symbols for some American futures.
so far I have being unsuccessful with IB's ticker look up.
the tickers I require include the
2)e mini s&p
4)e mini dow
6)e mini nasdaq
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.
