IB: Symbol for VIX futures and indices
Q: I am having a hard time finding the symbol that will work in EW for the futures contracts on the VIX (IB is my data supplier). I have no problem getting "VXQ7" to work just fine in TWS, but EW isn't going for it.
A: Using a current version of Ensign Windows, in my testing I have been able to get the following symbols to work by adding them to the Setup | Manager.
VIX U7 for futures
