Globex Symbols on QCharts

  1. I can't get the fullsized globex oil contract to display using ticker WC. Also, I can't get the emiNY to display either using QM. Does QCharts not carry them or am I using wrong tickers?

    How are the volumes comparing on the electronic and pit contracts now for crude and products?

    I use CL for full size oil on Qcharts. CL06Q.
  3. contango


    Electronic is a lot thinner and more volatile. But it's getting better. I suspect it's about the same situation for both crude and products.
  4. Yeah, that's what I've been using. My understanding is that now, CL is the pit-traded and WC the full-sized globex contract. WC trades until 5:15, I believe.
