Default Add method in an index

I am using the kinetic data feed

In the instrument manager I made an new instrument list
Dti and added in BH ##-##

In the historical data manager I see there is 1 years worth of data

In the indicator script

Add("BH ##-##", PeriodType.Day,1);// Heating Oil 1


But I get zeros, any reason for this?

Thank you for your post.

You should not need bars in progress.

Please try setting your Daily charts to the Default 24/7 session template.
  • Right click in your chart and select Data Series.
  • In the Data Series menu, set the "Session Template" property to "Default 24/7", then click OK.

Please let me know if you continue to experience issues.
