Index Symbols & Mkt Breadth

What are OEC's symbols for the major indices: DJIA, S&P 500 and NAZ? Or the Russel 2000 for that matter?

I'm in MC now attempting to add these and I only see the S&P 500 (SPX).

The Tick and Trins are there, the DJ Utilities Average (not industrials), a bank and gas index (BKX and XNG) , and that's it.

I was also hoping to get volume data from the NYSE and NASDAQ, as I do with ToS, but I don't see that either. Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

EDIT / ADD: I'm not using OEC Trader, but one can find symbols in there... It then requires a manual add within MC. Here they are:

$DJI
SPX
$COMP
RUT

They are working in MC...

I get an error message though in MC's Quote Mgr (QM) saying that "Your subscription limit of 5 has been reached". I have no idea what that is about....

If anyone knows how to get the volume for the NYSE and/or NASDAQ, do share. In ToS, for the Naz, it's $TVOL/Q.

Just got off the phone with OEC, and for mkt breadth it's:

TICK
TRIN
and the VIX

No advance / decline data, exchange volume, or put / call ratio. I requested them though...

Thank you.

That is one of the first places I looked, but unless I'm somehow missing it, I don't see the NASDAQ or NYSE there. It's futures contracts, which I use in my paper-trading, but not what I was asking about...

I dont know if there is any future for the NYSE.

As provided in an earlier post, OEC's symbols for the major US Indicies are:

$DJI
SPX
$COMP
RUT

I don't see these provided on their website, but can be found withing their downloadable OEC Trader. That said, OEC Trader is unable to show all of the symbols offered when doing a search...
