Can certain products NOT be traded on SIM?

This is just a stab in the dark...obviously if the SIM accounts can be accessed without a live account and without paying data fees...the exchange doesn't want to hand out free data.

But of course you're paying data why shouldn't you be able to trade them?

I'm thinking it has to do w the agreement between CQG and the exchange/s. Iow, it could probably be worked out but no one has really tried.

I also just learned that CQG uses EP as symbol rather than ES for emini SP500, for certain brokers on certain platforms...not all but some. And no one seems to know exactly why this is, not even the broker. I'm not saying these things are related, but it's a pattern of things that don't make immediate sense to me.
