I have not encountered this problem (at least not yet), but out of curiosity, I'm wondering how tick watching or historical data download would work if the same symbol exists in different exchanges? The "w" and "t" commands, for example, only include the symbol, not the exchange. Is this ever a problem?

Hello,

We rename the exchange symbols, when needed, to a unique value so you don't have to worry about that within our feed.
