IQFeed and eSignal Code Search
If an IQFeed/eSignal security cannot be accessed using the standard Optuma codes, then you can use this function to add the new code into Optuma. For this function to work you will need to know the correct IQFeed/eSignal symbol.
To search for IQFeed symbols click here.
To search for eSignal symbols click here.
For example, the continuous futures contract for gold is QGC# in IQ Feed and GC #F in eSignal.
In Optuma open the Security Selection window (F3) and enter the symbol in the search box. After a couple of seconds, the symbol will be added to your system.
In the example below, I have searched for the code @ES# which is the IQ Feed code for the Emini S&P500.
After clicking the Search icon, the code is automatically obtained from the IQ Feed database creating both the custom code and corresponding IQ Feed exchange.
