I tried getting a daily on GC ##-## (gold) and got no data found. All most all metal futures returned no data. A quick check shows no Symbol mapping for Kinetick. I googled iqfeed and came up with the Symbol QGC for gold. That worked but as you can see, big holes in the volume.
Other instruments missing a Kinetick mapped symbol I tried were SI and HG, should be QSI and QHG respectively. Also DX is @D and it should be @DX.
Understood, in the future, I will try to be more explanatory. B16 installer was pulled since we uncovered a few more installation items that we wanted to address. The new installer will be back up tomorrow, Monday at the latest.
The following user says Thank You to NinjaTrader for this post:
Thanks for the hint. Some of my problems were caused by wrong symbols. I just replaced @MD with @EMD (S&P midcap 400), @K with @KC (coffee), BC with @EB (Brent Crude) and the symbols for gold, silver and the dollar index as below. Data is now better, but there are still large holes in the volume for some contracts.
The symbol lookup of IQFeed is a pain, for EMD I could not find the symbol, so I just used the try and error method.

Thanks: 1,104 given,
Just got the message. Kinetick will not be beta tested until 17 is out.
Wonder if there are any slots for testers open?
Dear Kinetick Beta Tester:
Thanks again for your patience. Unfortunately, some changes were made outside of our control to the server technology that has forced us to delay the beta access until we release Beta 17 which should be out the week after next.
Here are some specifics you should be aware of:
- Supports stocks for real time and historical data
- Supports CME E-Minis for real time and historical data
- Supports Level II and Market Depth data
- To establish a connection, from within the NinjaTrader Control Center > Tools > Account Connections, select Kinetick and follow the wizard
This account will NOT work with Beta 16 or earlier. It will only become active when we release Beta 17.
Thanks and have a great weekend.
