The message “Hello Investor! You tried to send an order to an index and therefore your trade could not be executed. Click here to learn more.” is displayed when there is an attempt to trade in assets that contemplate indexes, such as IBOV.
Index assets such as IBOV gather previous and current symbols and are used exclusively for studies and tracking, so it’s not possible to trade them on B3. A similar message is also exhibited when there is an attempt to trade in a Historical Series in real-time (assets that end in FUT). Access this link (content in Brazilian Portuguese) for more information.
To send orders, use the current future contracts of the desired assets. On Profit Pro, it’s possible to see the Contract Calendar through the Tools menu > More Tools > Contract Calendar.
The Bovespa index (full and mini contracts) can be operated through the INDXXX and WINXXX assets respectively.
On the other hand, the full dollar and mini dollar contracts can be operated through the DOLXXX and WDOXXX assets respectively.
It’s also possible to check which are the current contracts through the link below, which is from B3’s (the Brazilian stock exchange) official website:
