I'm currently in my trial of SC. I've been trying to create continuous contracts of the NQ (nasdaq 100). I've read the instructions and checked the the appropriate boxes but I can't get anything that goes back further than the current contract. (I'm trying to create a daily chart and an intraday chart that are continuous).

Should I not enter the front month when creating a continuous daily chart? Sorry for such a basic question. I'm running windows 8.1 and I am running the latest version of SC.

Follow through the instructions here again:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/doc_ContinuousFuturesContractCharts.html

You also might want to re-download the data in the chart. The instructions for that are on the same page.


If the chart still does not have the data that you need, then post an image of it, by following these steps:

Before posting the image, reduce the bar spacing in the chart by pressing the down arrow key on the keyboard.
