I am unable to lookup symbols for Liffe Robusta Coffee futures using the new Gain API (although I had the same problem in the old OEC API). No other symbols I've seen give this error. The symbol lookup works but always returns zero contracts in the Contracts array event arg in the OnSymbolLookupReceived event.

Here's an example of my lookup request. In place of the hardcoded "COF10" I've tried "COF" and I even tried searching using WithDescription("Robusta") without any results. Also tried changing WithSymbol to WithBaseSymbol, didn't work either. Can you please provide a working call to lookup the Robusta Coffee contract?

client.Contracts.Lookup.ByCriteria(
new SymbolLookupRequestBuilder()
.WithResultCount(50)
.WithSymbol("COF10", TextSearchMode.AnyInclusion)
.WithExpression(new SymbolLookupExpressionBuilder()
.Push(new ContractTypeCriterion(ContractType.Electronic))
.Push(new ContractKindsCriterion(new[] { ContractKind.Future }))
.Push(SymbolLookupExpressionOperator.And)
.Build())
.Build());


Thanks!
Dave

Also noted I cannot lookup any of the following contracts (same issue no contracts found):

Liffe White Sugar
ICE Sugar
ICE Orange Juice

I'm wondering if these are just not supported on the demo server?

Which environment are you using? API/Dev or SIM/Demo?

I believe it's the dev environment.
