Hello Daniel, 

Recently I have started using RE with Interactive brokers. I would like to ask you if you could add three currencies supported by IB but not covered by RE. Namely: CNH, ZAR, ILS. 

Thank you,
Pavel.

Hi Pavel,

I've added the ZAR and ILS currencies for the next build.

It looks like CNH is the same as CNY, which is already available in RightEdge.  Is there any reason to treat these as two different currencies?  If not, then if IB is using CNH instead of CNY, then the TWS plugin would just need to be updated to translate the currency symbol.

Thanks,
Daniel

Hello Daniel, 

I believe that it makes sense to add offshore Yuan (CNH) as well. The difference between CNY and CNH is clarified here - http://www.businessinsider.com/difference-between-onshore-and-offshore-renminbi-2013-2?IR=T

Effectively those are two flavors of the same currency trading independently (through the gap between them is narrowing). 

Daniel, when could I expect new release of RE with these new currencies added ?
 
Thank you,
Pavel.

Hello Daniel, 

Can you please give us an ETA on the next build?

Best regards,
Pavel.
