display issues with Sierra historical service

I have a Quote list with several Historical symbols. CL#, ZN#, etc.

I use a quoteboard to step through the list. Most symbols display fine, but some of the charts have an incorrect long bar at the tail.

I know that setting the "Trade and Current quote symbol" will correct the chart. But the changes are lost when I move to another symbol.

Is there a way to retain these settings?

No. You really need to have a dedicated chart set up for each of the symbols with the corresponding Trade and Current Quote Symbol set where necessary. You cannot use symbol list to select these kinds of symbols from within a single chart window and avoid the described problem.

Unless you were to use a separate copy of Sierra Chart set for the SC Historical Data service:

Well, from my perspective, that bites. I'm still a big fan of Sierra, but keeping 30+ chartbooks open is a pain. Maintaining charts for two different Sierra Installations is also very inconvenient.

Are there any Sierra enhancements forthcoming that could remedy this situation? Real time Continuous futures symbols perhaps?

The proper solution is to use another copy of Sierra Chart when using those symbols with a #.

Also within the next month we will be improving the Continuous Futures Contract feature to make it faster. Here is the documentation for that (Method 1):

You can use that feature for now.
