These symbols have been added with the exception of silver because we could not find that. We are not sure what the Interactive Brokers symbol is.

Restart Sierra Chart to get the updated symbols. Let us know if they work properly for you.

Hi, Thanks so much for adding these symbols...

QC, MGC, M6B, M6A - all work perfectly...

QG, E7, J7, MSF, MXP - I get data for all but it's formatted without decimalization. I tried setting the chart multiplier in advanced settings and deleting and redownloading but couldn't get it to work. Also, IB won't accept orders from the products in this non-decimalized format.

MCD - micro canadian you have listed it as M6C... it needs to be MCD...

YC, YW, YK - the data is perfect- and this is my fault- while these are the cme/ecbot symbols, it appears IB actually uses XC, XW, and XK instead - sorry i didn't give you these in the first place.

Thanks again I really appreciate your help. Steve.

We apologize for this. These are all corrected. Update the symbol settings as explained here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/doc_GlobalSymbolSettings.php#UpdateSettings

In the cases where the decimal point was wrong, you will need to re-download the data in the chart by selecting Edit >>Delete All Data and Download.

Let us know if there any further issues.
