HI,
Im using IB and cannot search for symbols.
I've encountered this issue while trying to look for "DIA" Symbol, for some strange reason, when I try to open DIA (SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF)
SC open (or get) Margaret Lake Diamonds Inc. (DIA.V) instead.

1. how can I make find symbol work
2. how can I limit IB symbol to a specific stock exchange/country)


Thanks

1. Read this page:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/IBSymbols.html#Introduction

Stock symbols are not going to be listed.

2. Use the stock symbol format documented here:
