IQFeed @TFS 5m Chart Mismatch Between Front Month Contract and Continuation Contract

I have 5 min charts of IQFeed symbol @TFS# and @TFSM14. The charts should be identical as the @TFS# should show the current front month contract - @TFSM14. The charts look slightly different. I created one chart by duplicating the first chart and have checked that the underlying chart settings match. Today is the first time I noticed this difference.

Screenshots of the charts are uploaded at :


Please advise whether this is related to SC or should I raise it with IQFeed support.

We recommend contacting IQ Feed about this.

In general this is why we do not like continuous futures contracts symbols. You do not know exactly what you are charting.

Although if you look at the title bar of the chart, the contract month will be displayed.
