    VIX Future data using IB

    Hi NT team

    I am trying to use VIX future live data from IB for which I have real-time prices. It is strange it is working for some contracts (VIX 01-16), but not for others (VIX 12-15). It keeps changing.

    If I tried to load VIX 12-15 I receive the following error message:
    Error loading chart .... The contract description specified for VIX is ambigous; you must specify the multiplier . (200).

    I only have VIX index and VIX futures in my database. I need both. What can I do?

    thank you

    Hello,

    Thanks for your post.

    The VIX is not supported with Interactive Brokers since the format change of the instrument on IBs end.
    See the link below on this.
