Can't retrieve market data for COMEX copper future(RIC: 0#HG:)

I am using StarterConsumer to retrieve market data for COMEX copper futures(RIC: 0#HG:) and can't get market price update. For two days, I got only 1 refresh and 1 update only. The output are as following. The time zone is Shanghai of China. Can any body help me ? I ever used StarterConsumer to retrieve market data for LME copper future successfully.

Typically, RICs prefixed with 0#, 1#, 2#, … are chain RICs. Chains are used to hold instrument names that have a common association. Therefore, the payload of chain RICs contains the list of associated RICs.

The values in LINK_1 to LINK_14 fields contain constituent RICs. The value in NEXT_LR contains the next chain RIC. The application needs to subscribe to a chain RIC in the NEXT_LR field to the next associated list of RICs. For more information, please refer to chain’s articles:

To retrieve market data, the application needs to subscribe to RICs in the LINK_1 to LINK_14 fields.

In the RFA C++ package, there is a StarterConsumer_Chain example which subscribes to chain RICs and display all constituent RICs. You can modify this example to subscribe to all constituent RICs and handle chain updates.

Please see the output of StarterCosumer_Chain in the attached file.
