US Indexes cash and futures


What are the symbols in CQG for the S&P 500, NASDAQ, DOW30 and the Russel indexes both cash and E-mini?

Is there a chart the lists the different futures contracts and the value per point?




Here is a list of the most frequent traded futures symbols on the CQG data feed and how to format the base symbol:

Please note, CQG recently changed their Futures contract symbols to accurately reflect the year of the contract. For example, the previous contract for the December 2018 E-Mini S&P would have been EPZ8, now it is constructed as EPZ18 so please note this change when entering futures symbols.

You can also take a look at this chart here, provided directly from CQG:

Simply search the description of the contract you’d like to trade and CQG provides its users with up to date contract names, symbols, exchanges, and trading months.
