I am looking to use the SymbolLookup to populate our internal instrument database.

The following information would really help us.

1 - A list of exchanges used (and what each represents). I think this is the list:
CBL - CBOT?
CFE - ?
CME - CME
COE - COMEX?
EUR- EUREX
EURCMD - ?
EUREID - ?
ICECA - got it
ICEEUC - got it
ICEEUF - got it
ICEEUS - got it
IPE - got it
MGF
NYM - NYMEX?
OSE - Osaka?

I am not 100% sure what some of them are.

2 - The maximum value for "DesiredResultCount" if any.

Thanks

Pete

I'm not certain if maximum limit is imposed. In OEC Trader, we only show 50 results at a time. If you use a broad search keyword, you may not see all results available. In that case, you should narrow search with more filters or additional criteria.

We have a code example for 'Symbol Lookup' at:
