Hello,

it is possible to create custom symbols in the core service so I can make my own calender spreads symbol for the last 10 years history and then load them as 1 symbol each in PairTradeFinder Pro ?
E.g. I want to create Corn March for 2020, 2019, 2018, etc. only that March contract going back 10 years or at least 5 years. Is that possible to create such a custom symbol in IQfeed ? Because the goal is to load them then as my own custom symbol in PairTradeFinder Pro software. Any good workaround here if it is not directly possible ? Thanks.

Sincerely,
Andy

Andy,

This is not available in IQFeed, but we do have this capability in our ProphetX platform. While ProphetX doesn't feed PairTradeFinder directly, it would be worth checking to see if the data could get into PTF via DDE through ProphetX (or maybe what you are trying to view/analyze can be done natively in ProphetX). Information about ProphetX is available here: https://www.dtn.com/financial-analytics/commodity-trading/dtn-prophetx-commodity-edition/ and you can reach out to sales for a free trial.
