Whenever I load a chart with a continuous contract, I get this series of messages for the chart:

@EU# [CV] 240 Min #9 | Reloading chart. | 2017-12-11 07:17:44
@EU# [CV] 240 Min #9 | No contract months found for symbol. Unable to build continuous futures contract chart. | 2017-12-11 07:17:44
@EU# [CV] 240 Min #9 | There are no continuous futures contract symbols. Loading data normally. | 2017-12-11 07:17:44

@EU# is already a continuous futures contracts symbol.


Chart >> Chart Settings >>Continuous Contract needs to be set to None.

Thanks.

By changing this to None, do you know if it will change the way any of my data is displayed on my charts?

No. It really makes no difference other than removing the error message.
