"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.

I am currently using a beta versioin of xlQ that previously was workig well until the instrument changed from ES 03-12 to ES 06-12 (Emini S&P500). During the first quarter contract I was able to secure good data from IQFeed. The xlQ equivalent symbology for this futures is '@ESh12. When making the conversion to second quarter is there another symbol, other than '@ESh12, that I need to use so that the incoming data is second quarter vintage instead of first quarter?

Hello sdruley, since you are watching @ESH12 this will only pull data for the March 2012 contract for the E-mini S&P 500 future. To view the June 2012 contract you will need to change the symbol to either @ESM12 for the individual contract or @ES# for the Continuous contract which will roll automatically from front month to front month.

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

Thanks.

Curtis,

Thank you for your informed responses. Do you mean i can enter @ES# and I will not have to worry about changing the symbol again? My application is only for the current day and not historical. This would be nice.

Steve

Hello sdruley,

Yes you can use the # sign for any future and it will provide the current contracts data as well as the historical data if you choose to.

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

Thanks.
