On January 31, 2010 DTN will be converting all Futures, Futures Options, and Spread symbols to use 2 digit year codes instead of the current 1 digit year codes.

Front-month symbols will remain unchanged.

NOTICE: DTN.IQ users who have workspaces or watchlists setup using the month/year code symbols for these symbols will need to update thier workspaces and watchlists to the new symbology!

Examples:
Currently the symbol for the CORN MAR 2010 contract is CH0.
On January 31, 2010 this symbol will become CH10

Currently the symbol for CORN MAR 2010 Call at 110.00 is CH0C1100.
On January 31, 2010 this symbol will become CH10C1100

Currently the symbol for CORN MAR 2010 / SEP 2010 spread is CH0-CU0.
On January 31, 2010 this symbol will become CH10-CU10

Currently the Symbol for the CORN Front-month contract is C#. This will remain unchanged and continue to be C# after the transition.

In order to ensure the best support for futures, futures options and spreads contracts that trade further out than 10 years, DTN.IQ/IQFeed has transitioned its futures symbology to a 2-digit year-code format.

Although this change was released to customers on March 1, 2010, we have continued to support the old 1-digit year-code format in order to provide a smooth transition for our customers and 3rd party software providers.

Effective April 5, 2010, DTN.IQ/IQFeed will only support the new 2-digit year-code symbology. In order to ensure your charts, watch lists, spreadsheets, etc continue to function beyond April 5, please modify your software to utilize this new symbology now. Using the older 1-digit year-code symbols after April 5 will cause you to receive an "Invalid Symbol" or similar error.

Examples:
If you currently use @ESM0, you must change to @ESM10

If you currently use QCLJ0, you must change to QCLJ10

If you currently use @CZ1, you must change to @CZ11

If you currently use +CK0, you must change to +CK10

If you currently use any "front month" symbology that ends in "#", there is no change needed.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact customer support by www.iqfeed.net and clicking on the Support links.
