Hi All

Im writing an application that connects to Interactive Brokers API (TWS).
Im really struggling to find the names/details of the instruments to connect to.
I'm obviously looking at the wrong places, but not sure how to get these details.

I'd like to connect to the following
  • GOLD

I'm currently subscribed to US Securities Snapshot and Futures Value Bundle
I understand that not all of these instruments might be on this market.

Ive only been able to connect to the SPX so far with
Contract contract = new Contract();
contract.Symbol = "SPX";
contract.SecType = "IND";
contract.Currency = "USD";
contract.Exchange = "CBOE";

Any advise as where or how I can find the names (or if its possible, like DAX might not be listed)
for the above mentioned instruments would be highly appreciated.

Thank you
