I am trying to get a real time chart of the E-mini S&P in SC. I purchased the SC usage time, and also the SC Real Time & Historical Futures Data Feed. I set up an account with TD Ameritrade without depositing any money into it yet. Then I followed the setup instructions shown here:

When I go to Find Symbol, it only shows:
Australian Dollar
British Pound
Eur/US Dollar
E-mini Gold Futures
Gasoline RBOB

I thought the E-mini S&P500 would be shown here. Why isn't it?

This is very odd. Could you perform a Full Reset of the Symbol Settings as explained here:

Also you will need to deposit money into your TD Ameritrade account. You will need to have at least 500 USD in there. This is a CME requirement. We have not yet imposed any requirement on this, but we will in a few more days. If this is not the case, your data feed account will have to be canceled at the end of the month as it is not compliant with exchange rules.
