I've noticed these contracts (e.g. @QMU5 and @QNU5) are no longer in the symbols directory after moving from GLOBEX back to NYMEX in June. The last contract in the symbol directory for both of these is July 05. We process the symbol directory programatically and therefore are missing these products.

Can these be added back to the symbol directory so the directory actually matches what is available on IQFeed?

Thanks,
Scott

Symbol Directory on 7/19/05 missing symbols after 7/05:

Missing symbol examples are @QMU5 and @QGU5 (not @QNU5). My mistake. Thanks

I was able to find and quote @QMU5 and @QGU5. What application are you using and what symbol guide are the symbols missing.

Furthermore I noticed the missing symbols are available in the symbol lookup page on http://www.iqfeed.net/symbolguide/index.cfm?symbolguide=lookup&displayaction=support§ion=guide&web=iqfeed, but if the link is clicked at the top of the page to download the symbols from

http://www.dtniq.com/product/mktsymbols.zip

The missing symbols are indeed missing from this file. Shouldn't the downloadable file match the searchable database on the web page?

Please reconcile the downloadable symbol database to current symbols. Thanks.

We are checking into this and will get it updated shortly. Looks like a process to update the downloadable file hasn't been running.

Thanks. The file is still incorrect. We use this file to save you guys the bandwidth of having to query the IQFeed every time for a symbol or option. Do you have a date by which the process will be back up and running?

I don't have a date, but will dig a bit further into it tomorrow. Hopefully we will be able to have it running again by the end of the day unless it is a larger issue. Will post when I have more info on its status.

Thank you for your patience!

The .txt version of the file should be up to date now. We are still working on the .zip process. Thus, instead of mktsymbols.zip, pull mktsymbols.txt.
