CBOE and CME Bitcoin Futures

Support Request:

We have added symbol settings for CBOE Bitcoin futures for the supported trading services and data services except for Interactive Brokers because we cannot find the symbol for that broker.

What this means is the Bitcoin futures symbol will now be listed in File >> Find Symbol.

If someone could provide us a link to the Interactive Brokers contract specifications for the CBOE Bitcoin futures that would be appreciated. We tried to look them up but could not find any results.

We also did not add the symbol for IQ Feed. That is not done yet.

Follow the instructions here to update the Symbol Settings:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/GlobalSymbolSettings.php#UpdateSettings

The symbol settings for the CME Bitcoin futures have been added for SC Data-All Services but not for other services yet. So far there is no trading that we can see on the CME for Bitcoin futures.

We have set up the CME Bitcoin futures for all supported trading and data services except for Gain Capital because we are not sure of the symbol for that service.

We are not sure we have the symbol right for Interactive Brokers because they are not specifying the exchange here:
https://misc.interactivebrokers.com/cstools/contract_info/v3.9/index.php?action=Conid%20Info&wlId=IB&conid=299078198&lang=en

We set the exchange to CME.

What we observe from the CQG data feed for F.US.BTCF18 is incomplete data. We do see updating, but it is incomplete.

We do not know why. Could only seem to be a problem on the CQG side.

With the Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed we do see complete data:
