    Despite my anxieties, the movement last week from Globex to ICE seemed to go well for ER to TF.

    I didn't notice any downtime despite the market volatility, and no problem with my fills through IB.

    What's most encouraging is that my ER systems have thus far held up with the new contract.

    Any different experiences?

    What is the symbol on IB?
  3. So far so good, volume a little weak today

    You need to enter RUT as the underlying, then select TFZ8 as the current contract emini.

    A very stupid arrangement that has caused my trading plaform problems. But that is IB's fault, not ICE's.

    God only knows why they assigned a contract base symbol different from the underlying, which is also a stock symbol.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid.
