In the OEC feed, some symbols are renamed. Like CL is GCL.

Is there a property available that gives us the original symbol or symbol root? The "CL" part?

I need it for mapping back to the symbols in my own database...

If not, are the mappings documented?

Cheers

CL is a base contract, GCL is part of a contract name.
Try `Contract.BaseSymbol`
