Hi there, what is the correct code to use for this, i see there is the option for the sgx nikkei and the USD denominated nikkei on globex however im after the more liquid yen nikkei (NIYM3).. I cant seem to find this?

Also would be good to know the codes for mini JGBs traded on the SGX and JGBs traded on the TSE

Thanks

What we need you to do is provide us links to the Interactive Brokers webpages that document each of the specific symbols that you want us to add. We do not know Interactive Brokers symbols. It is the responsibility of Interactive Brokers to help you with this. Once you then have the information, you then need to provide that to us. When you right-click on a symbol in the TWS quote grid, you are able to bring up the webpage that documents the symbol.

Interactive Brokers is saying that the currency has to be specified. So what is the currency for that futures contract?

If it is JPY, then add -JPY to the end of the symbol.
