Yahoo

Is Yahoo still a legitimate quote source in MT? I'm trying to use it in a watchlist for futures quotes since TDA doesn't have them. I selected Yahoo as the quote source with a 30-second refresh rate, however it will retrieve the quotes only when I manually refresh them, it will not refresh them automatically every 30-seconds.

TDA does have futures.

Yahoo does work. but make sure you use MT symbol format.  in MT yahoo defaults to us equities timeframe as far as auto refresh. to change, click where it shows the time on the portfolio on the status bar and select CME GLOBEX as the timeframe

Where do I find the list of futures tickers from TDA, I've looked and I can't find them. As to the CME GLOBEX, I made the switch and the auto refresh still doesn't work. 🤷‍♂️

those are just a few of the top of my head. Same symbols will work with Yahoo
