hi,

i have some questions about this option. for now i have thisone:

1) if i have continuous futures contract am i somehow able to show "rollover line" i mean, i would like to see what date was rollover. so may i show some vertical line like that?

2) there is "automatically rollover futures contract" option in chart settings. my question is how does this work. i mean when does it work. on LTD or 1 day before lTD or when and how

3) if i check continuous futures contract why is slow data loading? is it something what has to be? i mean i alredy have these daily data in my computer so why is slow data loading? could be some better and faster way?

thx

1. No.

2. This has now been documented in Chart >> Chart Settings:
http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/doc_ChartSettings.html#AutomaticallyRollover

3. The method that is used is a time-consuming process. It cannot be made any faster.

For an alternative, refer to this page:

ok, i see. one less question. if i make my own file with continuouls contract - for example CL (crude oil) and than i will open current month CL-201306-NYMEX (i use interactive rokers) is it going to work? i mean i will have very long file (10years) and i expect that is going to downloud current mont. and next month and another month. i just want to see long past and i also want to have current month and day. and i also believe that would be faster than continuous contract from IB - there would be many many months and also files. is it workoning like that? or making this 10 years file is unprodactive?

You cannot do a 10 year continuous futures contract chart with Interactive Brokers. Do not even bother trying.

You can get a 10 year Historical Daily Continuous futures contract chart by using the Sierra Chart Historical Data Service. Refer to Method 2 here:
