Default Feature request: Please add support for CFD instrument

Please add support for Sydney Futures Exchange (SNFE) CFD instruments. I use Interactive Brokers, example symbol with IB for Rio Tinto would be:-

Stock = RIO[ASX,STK,AUD]
CFD = RIO[SNFE,CFD,AUD]

I can't get the mapping in NT to recognise the CFD symbol, I think, because ther is no Instrument type for a CFD.

Regards,
Kevin

Default Are CFD supported now?

Hi support,

I read back in 2010 that CFDs were not supported in Ninja. Has there been any progress on this since then?

cheers

Hello reggie,

Yes, CFD's are now supported but only with FXCM as a broker currently.

Default CFDs for IB

Hi support,

IB has added a wide variety of CFDs over the past few months, which look pretty attractive to me. Are there plans to support them in NT anytime soon?

Cheers
Kai

Hello Kai,

We are looking to expand CFD support to call the Brokers who support CFDs in the next major release of NinjaTrader. At this time though it is not confirmed, nor do we have a release date yet as it is still under development.

Is there any change in progress today?

Or still no support for IB CFDs?

I don't understand why CFD trading works with FXCM only, but not with IB

Thanks for sharing those thoughts guys, in current NT7 we would support trading / charting CFD's for FXCM only. Further extending support for other technologies such as IB is on our feedback list for the next major platform update, I'll make sure your votes are noted as well on our tracking lists.

All the best,

Hi Andreas, unfortunately no ETA we could offer at this point in time - it's being worked on hard with a lot of excitement in our team! Once more feature details and beta schedule become available, we will for sure approach our community.
