    I tried entering "ZS ##-##" for esignal ZS #F with the quotes and without the quotes but Got the following error from instrument manager.

    The "Master Instrument" Field only can hold Letters and digits and underscore. It doesn't like the "#" and "-"
    what am I missing

    Thanks
    Jerry

        Why do I need FTSE data to recieve ZS which is on the ecbt ?
        I do get live data for ZS on ecbt. The problem is not the data
        its in the instrument manager dialog box it immediately rejects
        my input of ZS ##-## saying the characters are illegal. I did a little test by entering a nonsensical symbol name with what it considers legal characters
        and it accepts it. It is not doing checking for the data at this point.

        PLease help

          In the symbol mapping, you only need to enter ZS. Then in the Instrument Manager, locate the front month drop down field, at the bottom you should see ##-## and you select this.

              Hi ,
              a question on the #F symbols.

              How does NT react on a chart when the #F adjusts from
              the data manager of e-signal?
              That is, at a certain date esignal rolls over to the new month and backadjusts all the previous data. Does NT adjust the
              previous data automatically? or, you would have to Reload all
              Historical data? If you have to Reload, is there any way to
              schedule automatic Reloads?

              Thanks,

                Esignal does not back adjust Historical data for #F symbols.

                  Hi Trend,

                  Thank you for your reply.

                  Historical data would need to be reloaded when this occurs.

                  Unfortunately, there is not currently a method with which to schedule historical data reloads. This will, however, occur automatically for all charts that are loaded when connected to the data provider.

                    correspondence about a month ago from e-Signal,

                    "
                    The #F Contracts will back adjust when rolled over. Please refer to the information on the link below regarding specific of how the Continuous Contracts are handled in eSignal:

                      JerryWar, dismiss previous response.
                      Correction from e-Signal today on the #F symbols,

                      "Thank you for your e-mail

                      #F symbols are not able to back-adjust, the only way to back adjust is to use 1!

                      If you have any questions or require further assistance, please let us know"

                      Note, that the 1! symbols do not stream to Ninja
                      (not part of their DataManager)
