    Greg,

    What you can do is just open a chart in NT with whatever contract month you want to view. NT7 will automatically merge older contracts into the chart for this contract to create you a "continuous" contract at least in charting.

        Greg,

        All you need to do is open a chart of ZC and the front month. So lets say ZC 06-10. If you left all the NT options default, it will pull old contract months and auto merge it into 06-10 to get you a "continuous"ly charted ZC. You were able to chart 2 years only because of this auto merging. You are already looking at a "continuous" chart. You can view the individual contracts it is adding together by checking out the Tools>Historical Data Manager's Edit tab.

        Zen-Fire does not offer native ##-## (or continuous contracts).

            Greg,

            Your current use of Zen-Fire has more data than that in minute data. Please increase your Days to load and you should be able to get back to ~2006/2007 with minute charts. You can then use your Historical Data Manager to export the minute data for the various expiries and then reimport it. When you reimport make sure to check "Generate 'Day' bars from imported tick or minute data". Then you will have EOD data back to ~2007.
