Rithmic Change of Symbols on Mini Gold and Mini Silver


**Notice:**If you are a Rithmic data-feed user, you will need to use the new NYBOT symbol to view quotes and place orders for YI and YG.

  1. Their exchange will change from NLX to NYBOT
  2. Their symbol will adopt NYBOT symbology
    Old==> YG0714.NLX (Product code was YG)
    New==> ‘YG FMN0014!.NYBOT’ (Product code is 206)


Since the YG and ZG instruments have now transferred from the Liffe Exchange to the ICE Exchange there are a few changes that NinjaTrader users need to make. We will need to update the symbol mapping and exchange listing for both the YG and ZG instruments.

We can do so by following these steps:

  1. Go to Control Center>Tools>Instrument Manager
  2. Search for the ‘YG’ symbol without quotes
  3. Select the ‘YG’ and click ‘Edit’
  4. On right hand side you’ll notice an ‘Exchanges’ list with checkboxes. Please uncheck any selections that are already made and then check ‘Nybot’
  5. In the upper-left hand corner click ‘Misc’
  6. Scroll to the ‘Symbol Map’ section and find both ‘Rithmic’ and ‘Vision Financial Markets’
  7. Here you will see symbols that look like this: YG|NLX
  8. Please remove the |NLX part so that the symbol map is set to only YG for Rithmic and Vision Financial Markets
  9. Click ‘OK’
  10. Click ‘OK’

Please also take note that NinjaTrader is not currently recording data for the new YG ICE contract so you would not receive any backfill data since the migration.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this migration.
