Did you tried to create the symbol manually in MC, as a spread or future as the instrument category?

Yeah, won't work. MC doesn't have a spread category and they've said before they don't support exchange spreads so you can't add it. Using the symbol under the futures doesn't show any spreads and I don't think there is a specific symbol in IB for exchange spreads unless I'm mistaken. Anybody using other tools to access exchange spreads via IB gateway?
