Could you please tell me what is the ticker for the CBOE/CFE bitcoin futures with Interactive Brokers?

I have it on the IB platform but can't find it on SC. Thanks.

This will be set up later today.

For market data for now you can use the symbol XBTUSD-BMEX.

Is the ticker ready? It's for trading not watching. Thank you.

This has now been added and is listed in File >> Find Symbol >> Futures.

The symbol begins with GXBT.

Thanks. Working for historical, not intraday. Should I post the log?

Go ahead.

We are also not sure about the exchange part of the symbol. It could just be that it needs to be CFE.

Actually loading intraday just says

"GXBT-20180100-CFECRYPTO-USD-1 5 Min #1 | Reloading chart. | 2017-12-12 16:17:36
GXBT-20180100-CFECRYPTO-USD-1 5 Min #1 | Currently no data in file to display. Will start historical data download and real-time updates. File: R:\Sierra Data\Sierra Data IB\GXBT-20180100-CFECRYPTO-USD-1.scid | 2017-12-12 16:17:36"

Expiration dates are listed incorrectly that's why the intraday's don't work.

e.g. GXBT-20180117-CFECRYPTO-USD-1 works intraday and historical
e.g. GXBT-20180100-CFECRYPTO-USD-1 which is the one listed on SC works historical only

OK, so unfortunately, the week has to be specified as well. We still have to develop a solution to that.

Actually we did not even realize, that there were the extra characters in the pattern for the week. But that does make sense because we copied the volatility index futures pattern as a reference.

Does this symbol work?: GXBT-201801-CFECRYPTO-USD-1
