Nasdaq 100 index symbol with IB Data Plugin

What is the correct symbol for the Nasdaq 100 index? I can see the streaming data in TWS, but not in AmiBroker.

Symbol NDX-NASDAQ-IND, results in market data permission error. My data subscription is:

  • US Securities Snapshot and Futures Value Bundle
  • US Equity and Options Add-On Streaming Bundle

I have no trouble with the other major indexes:

SPX = SPX-CBOE-IND
DJI = DJI-CME-IND
RUT = RUT-RUSSELL-IND

If you get data permission error it means that symbol is correct, but your subscription does not allow it. You need to ask Interactive Brokers for correct data permission/subscription.

For the sake of others reading this, I contacted IB customer support. It turns out the US Securities Snapshot and Futures Value Bundle combined with US Equity and Options Add-On Streaming Bundle does not provide real-time streaming quotes for the Nasdaq 100 index. This is what is needed:
