Subject : Symbol $VIX needs a mapping for IQFeed

Hello there.

I'm using IQFeed as data source.
When a strategy references the symbol $VIX I don't get any data. In the ot.log log file I find this error message.

Probably the symbol needs a special mapping for IQFeed. The IQFeed symbol for the VIX index is VIX.XO. Please, add a corresponding mapping for OT.

Cheers,
Christian

We did this last week, so it'll be in the next PR. If you want the mapping now, please install the attached file into the Nirvana/OT2016/DLLs folder.
Attached file : Vendors.otd (836KB - 37 downloads)

Hello Barry.

I've deleted the existing file and put the downloaded one into the folder. Don't get any data for $VIX either.

Do you get that data successful from IQFeed with that Vendor.otd file?

Yes it works. Did you install the file while OT was closed? You probably either need to right-click the file, select Properties & 'Unblock' it, or perhaps you're missing the data entitlement for VIX.XO which is CBOE Indexes. Are you getting data for VIX.XO?
