"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues.

It depends which Forex package you subscribe to. The symbol guide is available by going to www.iqfeed.net and clicking "Symbol Guide" or directly at http://www.iqfeed.net/symbolguide/index.cfm?symbolguide=guide&displayaction=support§ion=guide&web=iqfeed

Basic Forex includes Barclays and FXCM data.
Premium Forex add TenFore which has multiple contributors.

For Basic, I would suggest using the FXCM data which has symbology of EURUSD.FXCM
For Premium, I would suggest using the .COMP symbol which is EURUSD.COMP.

Thanks Jay. I didn't realize I needed a subscription for it. I thought what is referred to as 6E is available with basic subscription (I must admit I don't understand the differences very well)

Hello, the 6E is the EuroFX future from the CME Globex exchange. Which our Symbol is @EU# for the Continuous contract or @EUM10 for the June 2010 contract. This is included with the basic IQFeed service but will not be in real-time rather it will be delayed by 10 minutes. For the Contracts to be in real-time you would need to sign up for the CME Exchange which is currently $67 per month and covers everything that is on the CME Exchange.

As to the other symbols that you have listed those symbols are;

EUR/USD - @EU# - Euro Continuous Contract
USD/JPY - @JY# - Japanese Yen Continuous
GBP/USD - @BP# - British Pound
USD/CHF - @SF# - Swiss Franc
USD/CAD - @CD# - Canadian Dollar
EUR/JPY - @EY# - EuroYen
AUD/USD - @AD# - Australian Dollar

If you have any other problems or questions please let us know.
