Hi,

I could import stocks using the attached CSV format. Similarly, how can I import stock futures with underlying and default quantity (order presets)?

Can you please provide me some sample CSV?

Thanks!

Hello wagyan,

I have attached a file that will work for importing futures. The main columns should be Symbol, Exchange, and Type.

Thank you.

Hi Jason,

1. Your CSV file will define the instruments but I can't trade them, because they will have only 1 QTY by default. I believe Futures lot size never be 1 and order will be invalid.

2. So, let's say I Import 50 Futures instruments, manually edit each instrument to define the order preset and start trading. But, as you would know, Futures would expire in a month and symbol name will change. And, then I have to do this entire exercise again.

Do you agree with the above problems?

Is there any solution/heck for now until enhancement?

Thanks!
