Ninja connected to Yahoo - Symbol fail?

Hi traders
I'm using NT7 with connection to AMP and Yahoo.
From Yahoo I have problems selecting intruments with a dask (-) in the symbol.
CARLS-B.CO is working fine. But NZYM-B.CO does not work.
NDA-DDK.CO works fine, but ALK-B.CO does not.
Anyone know why?

Best Regards
Torben

You can pull up these symbols directly on Yahoo's website OK?

Do the symbols exist in your Instrument Manager on NT?

When you say "does not work", what exactly do you mean? What is the error message? What happens? What does the log say?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
