Post From: Notice: Important Update for Interactive Brokers Users
Sierra Chart Engineering - Posts: 64933
As we implement the very complex method to resolve a simple Contract Year and Month for futures contracts we are thoroughly convinced, that that our complaints about Interactive Brokers are valid.
For example, the contract data which make up the symbol for executions, is incomplete and does not even contain the Contract ID.
When and if Interactive Brokers were to adopt the DTC protocol, they need to take the various "Contract" fields and combine them into 2 text strings. One for the Symbol and one for the Exchange. They need to have a standardized and clear and consistent methodology for this that must always be followed.
