The best way to do this with Interactive Brokers would be to open 2 charts that you want to calculate a spread for and use the Difference study:

These are futures symbols.

Refer to this section about futures data:

What we recommend you use is the Sierra Chart Historical Data Service for this data:

Follow the instructions here:

We recommend using BitMEX and the symbol is XBTUSD-BMEX
