Symbol for 30yr Bonds index

Discussion in 'Financial Futures' started by russell007, Nov 30, 2005.

  1. Can anyone tell me the symbol for 30 Yr Bonds Index on Tradestation? Just like RUT is the symbol for Russell 2000 Index.

    Thanks
     
  2. I believe it's ZB.

    What is the "30 Year index"?

    If you are referring to The 30 year Bond future, the symbol is USH06 for eCBOT on Tradestation or USH06.p for Pit traded contracts.
     
  4. No thats Bonds futures. I am talking about the index, Just like Russell 2000 index has a symbol of RUT but its futures symbol is ER

    There are literally over 1000 indexes.
    The closest thing I found, since you are really not referring to anything that exists or is useful:

    $BNDUS = The Lehman Bond Composite

    Most watch the 10YR/30YR and their Yields.
     
  6. I am looking for the symbol of Notes and Bonds on TS from the following List


    Interest Rate Options Product Specifications

    Symbols:
    13-Week Treasury Bill - IRX
    5-Year Treasury Note - FVX
    10-Year Treasury Note - TNX
    30-Year Treasury Bond - TYX

    If that make sense..

    Thanks

    Then Right-click, "format Symbol", "Look Up", "Index", and search!
     
  8. TradeStation has a symbol list posted somewhere (I'm no longer a user and can't remember where its posted).

    That list contains the symbols for the Treasury Futures and their respected Index (sometimes called Yields).

    The Yields are FVX, TNX and TYX in most charting programs...

    Not sure how TradeStation has its symbols for the Yields and it may be searchable by the word Yields instead of Index.

  9. Couple of different suggestions

    $TYX.X 30 yr yield
    $TNX.X 10 yr yield
    $FVX.X 5 yr yield
    $TUV.x 2 yr yield

    You also might want to reference the iShares Lehman Bond indicies.

    IEF 7-10 yrs
    TLT 20+ yrs
