    I am currently using MC with IB datafeed to trade futures.

    I would like to have the US stocks, ie, IBM feed into MC.

    Can someone please tell me the root symbol that I am supposed to use on the "symbol root" on the quote manager ?

    I've tried "IBM", but it doesn't work. is it "IBM US" or something ?

    similar questions, for HK stocks, 949 HK. what root symbol should I use ?

    many thanks...
