Having problems with contract joining using CTS. seems like problems with volume and date based. I have not tried to do yearly, quarterly or monthly charts since the CTS symbol shakeup, so i don't know if this ever worked. Running 1143.

YM, NQ, TF, and SB (ICE sugar)



YMM14/YM.20140600.CME_E [CBV] Yearly #5: Date based rollover rule not defined for symbol. Unable to build continuous futures contract chart. | 2014-06-04 15:58:22
NQM14/NQ.20140600.CME_Eq [CBV] Yearly #5: Date based rollover rule not defined for symbol. Unable to build continuous futures contract chart. | 2014-06-04 16:04:25\\

Tf and sugar (both ICE) seems to throw all kinds of crazy errors.

SB.20140700.ICE_CO [CBV] Quarterly #6: SB.20130700.ICE_CO price difference to SB.20131000.ICE_CO is 0. | 2014-06-04 16:11:57
Error while getting daily open price with date 2013-09-30 from file. C:\SierraChart2\Data\SB.20131000.ICE_CO.dly. Error: Encountered end of file. | 2014-06-04 16:11:57

You need to update the symbol settings by following the instructions here:

http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/doc_GlobalSymbolSettings.php#UpdateSettings


After that you need to go to each chart that is giving this message:
Date based rollover rule not defined for symbol. Unable to build continuous futures contract chart.


And select Chart >> Reload and Recalculate.

For this symbol:
SB.20140700.ICE_CO

Open a new chart through File >> Find Symbol.

Thank you, this resolved the problem. The Historical Chart Symbol was blank on the broken symbols. update from server fixed it.
