    Does anyone here get a quote feed for the Kospi 200 index futures through IB? On their website it says the Korean market data is free but when I log into account management and click on market data subscriptions I don't see the Korean exchange as an option. Can anyone help me out here?

    Thanks

  2. Not available to US residents.
     
  3. Yes, I get a quote feed and trade the Kospi occasionally. Keep in mind that they are not available for US residents (not approved for trading by CFTC). If that does not apply to you, you may want to contact IB to make sure that they have not flagged you as a US resident (and thus, you cannot see the market data subscription).

    Thanks. Does anyone know if and/or when it will be available to U.S. residents?

    Thanks

  5. I just called CFTC, but they told me that no approval date is in sight. The status is pending. Wonder why:confused:
