    Hi, guys,

    Is anybody able to create an intermarket generic combo consisting of 2 different future contracts trading on Globex, say ES-NQ?

    When I drag and drop even the first contract (ES) into the generic combo dialog, TWS gives an error box, saying: "Only some US future contracts (CME, ONE, CFE and EUREXUS) are supported for generic combo."

    I tried 2 contracts that are somehow listed on CME (GE and SPY). These work ok and I can create a generic combo. So I presume there is a bug in TWS, where they check for the exchange to be CME instead of Globex.

    Do you guys have any luck with that? 'Coz I'm completely lost...
