I installed the extension and the client for IQFeed. I entered some of the continuous future symbols (below) mentioned on their Website at http://www.iqfeed.net/symbolguide/index.cfm?symbolguide=guide&displayaction=support&section=guide&web=iqfeed

@AD @BP @CCS @CCT @CD @CT @DX @ED @ES @FC @FOB @KC @LB @LC @LH @MP @ND @NQ @QG @QM @QPA @SF @SP +BO +O +S +W

However, I get an "invalid symbol" message when i update the data

1) Is there a mapping format between symbols entered in Wealth-Lab and the actual IQFeed symbols
2) I assume I need to enter these symbols in the Symbol Info Table with the big point value and other details of the continuous features, correct?

thanks,
Kiran

There's no mapping: symbols are entered as is i.e. as they are called in IQFeed. These futures symbols must actually exist in your IQFeed subscription. Barebones version doesn't include futures (IMHO). It's a separate package(s). Likewise, you'll see delayed data for some stocks if you haven't subscribed to real-time package for that particular exchange.
