The Ironbeam trading platform uses a simple syntax for exchange symbols. Unlike many other platforms, the Ironbeam app uses the same symbols that the actual exchange that they are traded on uses. All you need to do is type the exchange symbol and the expiration separated by a period.
The symbol for the E-Mini S&P 500 is ES. The expiration code for December 2020 is Z20. Therefore, the symbol for the December 2020 E-Mini contract is ES.Z20.
For options you will use the same syntax however, we will add C (for call) or P (for put) and the strike price at the end, also separated by a period. So for the December 2020 3000 strike call, the symbol will be ES.Z20.C3000.
Spread symbols are also designed to be easy to add. Type in the front-month contract, a hyphen, then the back month contract. The symbol for December 2020 vs. December 2021 Crude Oil calendar spread would be CL.Z20-CL.Z21.
