Post From: Data not showing up for NYSE, Futures ok, Denali data feed

Sierra Chart does not provide any symbol settings for:
FLNG-NQTV

If you see that in File >> Find Symbol , then you must have set that up yourself. Not Sierra Chart. And there is an error in the Symbol Settings you created. This is what is causing the problem. This is not the fault of Sierra Chart.


Exit from Sierra Chart, go into the Sierra Chart installation folder and go to the SymbolSettings sub folder and delete the custom symbol settings file : CustomSymbolSettings.interactive_brokers.trading.xml

Regarding this:
I have spent the whole week on this same problem and I am no further ahead than I was ( Denali Feed / executing via IB) , I had a chartbook with 9 charts for equities , each one had the trade window attached , so I could watch and trade 9 tickers and add alternate ones if a stock was in play that day , I hadn't used it for a few weeks, when I did open it, the charts were not updating . I also had a Chart book just for ES / MES which I use all the time which was working fine, I read about the problem with the IB API and updated to version 2466 for a start ,and version 10,20 I j on TWS , Equity Charts still wouldn't update . So I updated to the 2475 pre- release , Tried to place a trade on MES Thursday open . wouldn't accept it and wouldn't cancel either
Finished up having to go back to the previous builds , Today I closed all the chartbooks apart from the equities one , switched to SC feed and after deleting data etc I managed to get the charts to update , But when I go back to IB feed they stop ; Also having a prob with USDX and AUDUSD updating as well
What do I have to do to have it like I had before ? Thing is its not the same with every stock
