    eSignal Continuous Contract Symbol Charts

    How can I chart, for example, YM #F instead of the Sep contract, using eSignal data feed.

    #2
    Add "YM ##-##" in the instrument manager. This will then retrieve the YM #F symbol from eSignal.

    NOTE: You can NOT trade this symbol through any live brokerage since its a synthetic contract and not the actual one.

        Backtesting is fine, live trading not.

          useful to know since that avoids having to import historical data into NT from e-signal which is a pain.

            is the same concept for other continuous contracts?
            e.g. cgold, e-mini S&P, etc. e-mini NASDAQ

                Dierk and NT, a couple of basic questions. Per above how come you can't use a live chart with continuous Esignal, did I get that right? You guys have really improved charts, congrats. My buddy wants to use them. I heard you can use them for free NT charts, with out an account? Is that true? He was thinking of NT with an Esignal feed, and then maybe a full NT broker accnt with Esignal historical feed.

                  Of course can provided eSignal emits realtime data fro their continuous contracts and NT supports the particular eSignal continuous contract symbol.

                  Correct

                      Can you verify that eSignal provides the continuous contract for FTSE?

                      Also check your log tab for errors when trying to brin up this contract.

                        eSignal does have this contract it is there under Z1!-EEI

                        When I type it in NT it 'seems' to start to load the data, and no errors but nothing on chart.

                        Btw this is my 1st time using this forum and the response time you just did is incredible

                          Hello alandon,

                          Are you able to receive data for the Z 03-09 in a chart?

                          Do you receive data for the Z ##-## when using the default symbol mapping of Z|EEI?

                              Ok, thanks for the reply alandon - did you test on eSignal directly that they provider continuous contracts for the Z symbol?
