1. You need to adjust the settings for this in Global Settings >> Symbol Settings.

Here is the documentation:

The exchange specifications make reference to the last trading day. If you hold a contract to that point, you know that your can be subject potential delivery. Which can be a hassle to get out of if you do not want to take delivery. Although these days with gold, it seems as though the situation is exactly the opposite. Seems like the exchange would be happy to cash settle rather than deliver.

If you look closely at the settings in Global Symbol Settings, the rollover is based on a certain number of days before the delivery month.

2. No. Because this goes against the general design philosophy of Sierra Chart not to annoy users with prompts that have to be acknowledged. If you do not want the automatic rollover, then uncheck Automatically Rollover Futures Symbol and handle it on your own.

3. No.
