Interactive Broker Symbol Error

Post by OE » Tue Mar 01, 2016 6:25 pm

I am testing the automatic order trasmission to IB and I receive the following log error message
"44, 200, SM, Futures Definition not found on exchange CBT"
It make sense because the CSI Futures symbol codes are different then the IB ones.
How can I solve the problem ?
Thanks

Set the correct IB exchange and symbols in the Futures Dictionary.
