Error when collecting ibkr data for GBTC

Hi there,

I’m getting the following error when trying to collect data for GBTC (FIBBG008748J88) from IB:

Please advise.

A better error message is needed there, but the issue is that although that security is in your securities master database, you haven’t collected the security listing from IBKR so some of the information required to request historical data is missing. The solution is to collect the security listing from IBKR then try again. It’s the same as this issue (but with the history service instead of the realtime service):

Version 2.2.0 is now available and includes better error handling for this situation.
