Hi everyone,

 I have subscribed to a signal but i must have done something wrong.

All i get in the logs are messages like this:

 "2015.09.03 19:51:06.160 '200': Signal - position #9393030 sell 0.01 AUDNZD at 1.11175 skipped as no symbol found"

 I have all symbols "shown" in market watch so im not sure why the symbol is not found???

 Any help would be appreciated 

Could it possibly be because my account is a spread betting account? 

Cheers guys

Hi did you sort this out? I have the same problem.

I'm trying to do it on EURUSD but it shows as EURUSD-sb with my broker so it wont work

Having the same exact issue with GBPUSD because the signal shows it as GBPUSD_ST and therefore says, "skipped as no symbol found."


I'm surprised this isn't a more common issue.

There's probably a way to write a script (or EA) that converts the signal into the proper trade order,

but I'm hoping there's an easier work around.

do u use same broker with signal provider? even a different single word at last symbol also the system cannot find it..

for example, im using fortfs flex account, there got an 'f' at the end..so i cannot copy the signal from other account where there is no 'f' at the end..

this is just my opinion.. :)

MT is supposed to only use the first 6 characters, so the f at the end shouldn't matter. I'm following a trader with an f at the end. It works with on broker, but not another. MT is supposed to remove the f though.

It seems to be hit and miss. Works sometimes, but not always

Such thing needs to be reported to ServiceDesk if you want a solution.
