IQFeed by Aleksey

I installed the extension and the client for IQFeed. I entered some of the continuous future symbols (below) mentioned on their Website at


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?

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.
