Hi Lewcifer,

I am seeing the same invalid symbols. Checking with Market Data, and will let you know as soon as I have an answer.

Thanks,

Hi Lewcifer,

These invalid symbols are coming from the Green Exchange, which is not currently carried on IQ Feed. If you would like access to the Green Exchange data, this is available on our Prophet X platform.

Sorry for the confusion,

Sarah

Sarah - Thank you for researching this issue. I'd like to make a suggestion, to avoid future problems like this one...

When making Futures Symbol/Root Changes announcements in the locked and pinned forum thread by the same name, please cite the applicable platform as well. This will eliminate one source of customer confusion and wasted/duplicated research time.

Thank you again for your answer.

Regards,
Lew Payne

Hi Lew,

You read my mind...I already went ahead and made that suggestion, and anything that does not apply to all platforms should be notated in the future.

Thank you,

Sarah
