    Iab cfd

    When I try to load a Chart with a CFD Instrument (GER30) connected to IAB (via TWS)
    I receive "IB was unable to locate instrument. Please verify your symbol mapping is correct for instrument @GER30 Default."

    In my TWS the symbol for GER30 is IBDE30 . In the NT instrument list the symbol for GER30 is IBDE30||||EUR. Can I use GER30 for the IAB IBDE30 CFD?

    Hello Frank,

    Thank you for your post.

    Are you able to access data for this instrument within TWS itself? The default symbol mapping for the instrument appears to be correct based on the information I see related to this instrument in Interactive Brokers' symbol lookup however I am unable to confirm that these settings will function as our testing account is not authorized for data for CFDs.

      Hi,

      I've been struggling with this too, have tried adding symbols through instrument manager. For example tried to add a CFD instrument for AAPL with it mapped to AAPL through IQ feed and AAPLn through Interactive Brokers but see error messages in the log saying it was unable to locate the instrument through Interactive Brokers.

      Thanks

                So, you will not support stock CFD's in NT8 concerning the issue from tdouglas.

                What about the Future CFD's which I reported GER30 (IBDE30). See opening thread.
                Kyle I think you mixed the issue from me Frank (starcd) and Tim (tdouglas)...

                    Hello,

                    Same for me, whatever the IB CFD symbol.

                    See logs with an IBFR40 position opened from TWS:
                    7/17/2015 5:55:59 AM,Position,Received position for unknown symbol 'IBFR40' error 'Received Interactive Brokers contract with no exchange set for symbol 'IBFR40'',
                    7/17/2015 5:53:00 AM,Connection,IB was unable to locate instrument. Please verify your symbol mapping is correct for instrument @FRA40 Default,


                    I kept the original mapping: "IBFR40||||EUR"
                    I tried to map this symbol to the SMART exchange but there is no SMART exchange available.

                      Hi,

                      Any luck with moving this forward? Understand that stock cfd's won't be supported but the index cfd's which are in the default symbols in ninja trader and have interactive brokers symbol mappings aren't working either.

                      Thanks

                        Hello All,

                        Based on what I see in our internal issue tracking database this is something which should be resolved with the release of beta 4. Once NinjaTrader 8.0.0.4 has been released please check these symbols again and follow up with me here if additional issues come up.

                          Hi,

                          I just installed NT 8.0.0.13 to see if i can chart and trade CFD's with NinjaTrader and InterActive Brokers.

                          Unfortunately I can't even get a CFD instrument from the Instrument look-up to a Instrument List. If I try to add the instrument AEX25 to my Instrument List I get an error: "Invalid Instrument name".

                          In the Instruments editor no Exchange outside of "Default" is configured and the Tick Size is wrong. I also get these errors for other index CFD's like GER30.

                          Please advice...

                            Hello Nick88, and thank you for your report.

                            I was able to use the built-in symbols @GER30 and @AEX25 on my system successfully. I am using a more recent version of NinjaTrader, 8.0.2.0 . With my Tools -> Options -> Market Data -> Filter Bad Ticks option checked, data comes in for both these symbols without error. The Tick Size on both the NT and IB sides matches.

                            If this is not your experience with the above configuration, with the instrument symbols typed in verbatim into your instrument selector, please let us know so we may assist further.
