MT symbols for IB Indices would be

$XAU

$GOX

 

But those are not spot prices. Best bet would be the futures:

@GCG14

 

but you have to have a subscription for that.

yep, no real long term spot price solution for Gold with IB or Tradestation, The best I was able to come up with during the year was reference the "Z" contract @GCz14 for intermediate time frames. Only data I trust is current contract [the contract I am trading].  

 

Tradingview, Stockcharts or continuous contract data needs to be taken with a grain of salt, reference but not rely on.

 

What I find curious is that the web based charts have data for spot gold ie. $GOLD (CME) - but spot gold price isn't available directly from exchange website. Always found that peculiar. 

 

anyway, just sharing a few options with OP.

attempted XAUUSD, $XAUUSD, no plot.

 

XAUUSD is a London commodity [not available to trade for legal US citizens],however for charting purposes is it possible to plot in MT?

 

XAU.USD [gold-london]

EDIT:.....

 

This type of symbol is not currently supported. I will see what we can do for future versions

 

 

Thank you kindly
