Directory of futures symbols?

    I've been looking at IB's Futures & Options on Futures Margin Requirements list and I'd like to find a directory that explains what each underlying symbol means.

    Could someone please suggest one.

    As well, are there any futures that cover the nasdaq besides the NQ?

    I found a directory on IB's site:

    Trading Information/Products/Exchanges

    What futures besides the NQ follow nasdaq stocks?

    nothing else really besides the NQ

    the ND is the big brother to the NQ and trades open outcry during the day and electronically from 3:45pm to 8:15am

    CME has a couple of new products coming out
    Sep 23 they have a technology sector index coming out based on tech stocks

    and Merrill has a tracker product on the CME with the symbol MLT that trades electronically
    it is basically a long short index of tech stocks

    good luck
