Symbol Matching

A big feature we're currently missing (especially regarding the ctrader Copy section) is symbol matching.

Different brokers use different names for indices.

Example is that broker 1 uses DE30 , broker 2 uses GDAXI.

When a  cTrader Provider on  broker 1 set an order on DE30, a customer on broker 2 will not open the trade because the name is different on the symbol.

There should be a unique identifier for the symbols throughout the platform, which matches symbols without having the need to be exactly named the same.
