    For Kinetick and IQFeed the symbol mapping is missing the @ symbol in front of the symbol mapping.

    To resolve this in NinjaTrader 7, follow the steps below.
    Go to Tools> Instrument Manager
    Under Available Master Instruments select the RTY and press Edit
    Select the Misc tab
    Under Symbol Mapping for Kinetick and IQFeed set the mapping to: @RTY

    To resolve this in NinjaTrader 8, restart to pull the update.
