Post From: Forward Curve Study Doesn't work for some symbols?

We do not think it is related to the Delayed Data, as it uses the Daily data for the future contracts for the date prior to today that you are looking for. So it should not matter. Also, you are not setup to get real-time data for the VIX futures, so that should be delayed data as well.

The one thing we want to ensure is that you are using the "Forward Curve" study and not just setting the Continuous Futures Contract Type to Forward Curve Study Support. You need to use the Forward Curve study.

But, the Forward Curve seems to be a bit touchy, as we had times when it would not show up with either real-time or delayed data.

What we recommend is to ensure you have the chart set back to a "normal" state, so ensure there is no Continuous Contract selected and make sure the Load Data Limiting Method is set to Use Number of Days to Load and that the Forward Curve is not on the chart.

Then when you add the Forward Curve, be sure to set the first Days Back for Forward Curve 1 to a value greater than 1. And the same for any other curves you want - be sure to set the number of days back to be greater than 1.

Then see if you are able to get the lines to show up properly for each of the symbols you want.
