Entering tickers into NT Instrument Manager

Just learning Ninja Trader and need some help entering tickers through the Instrument Manager. Most of them went through okay but I have a handful that when I enter their name and/or description and click search, nothing comes up. They are:

SPY
FAX
HDGE
GLD

I figure I must be missing a step or something.

Just load a chart, any chart. Then type SPY. It will bring up SPY and download the settings automatically from your feed (ie: IQFeed/Kinetick/IB).

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)

Thanks Mike. The other thing that I wanted to do though was watch a handful of tickers in the market analyzer. In order to do this, they must be first be in the instrument manager. I guess the instrument manager doesn't automatically identify everything. I put those same tickers on a list and used the load list feature and it worked fine.

There are a few though that are still giving me problems. Take a look at this symbol on marketwatch:

Barclays Bank PLC iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN, VXX Stock Quote - (NAR) VXX, Barclays Bank PLC iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN Stock Price

This was one of the tickers that Al Brooks mentioned on his webinar. If you go to that link you will see the name of the symbol as Barclays Bank PLC, etc. Just under that is states, "NAR VXX. I thought that NAR might be the market it trades on. Check out this one:

Facebook Inc. Cl A, FB Stock Quote - (NASDAQ) FB, Facebook Inc. Cl A Stock Price

Clearly the Nasdaq right? So what is NAR then? I can't find it anywhere. When I search on Google it only has references to Market Watch. I am just trying to find out some of the markets that these symbols trade on. I see this NAR a lot (HDGE, GLD to name a couple)Any ideas?

Go to a chart. Type SPY. SPY then loads. Now you can see it in Instrument Manager, and move it to a 'list'.

Who is your broker? You'll need to check symbol mapping with your broker for certain indices and breadth tickers.

For IQFeed you can check here:
Welcome to IQFeed! - Fast, Reliable, Affordable. Datafeeds and API.

For Kinetick here:

Edit: Just saw you use IB. I can't help much with that, because I have a hard time finding stuff with IB too. I would never use their data, just use Kinetick instead.
