Hi all,

is there a way to automatically update the sysmbols in the charts?

I trade futures, which symbols I need to change 4 times a year. Can I do that automatically, entering a formulae "If date between x and y, then chart symbol:=z"?

Yes. You need to use the Rollover settings for the symbol in the Global Settings >> Symbol Settings window:

The version you are running might not have this. Please update.

You need to go to Global Settings >> Symbol Settings, select the symbol and then select the Rollover tab.
