Is anyone familiar with how to setup futures trading with IB? I first tried to setup E-mini S&P futures. I did figure the symbol out. When using the Download script to update the assets file I get this.


Bear with me, I am new to Futures....

From for ES (S&P E-mini)
Point Value $50
Tick Size 0.25 points ($12.50 per contract)
Contract Size $50 times Index
Point Value $50
Margin/Maintenance $13,200/12,000

When backtesting the equity is tracking the asset value. Not $12.50 per contract/0.25 value tick. Does the Download script now work for Futures on IB? Any suggestions on how to properly configure the assets file?
