    Hello net4walk,

    Yes ES 03-12 is the correct format.

    Can you load the ES 12-11 contract from Kinetick?

    What steps did you take to roll over to the 03-12?

    Please follow the instructions below to rollover the expiration date of a futures contracts.
    • From within the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the menu Tools > Instrument Manager
    • Highlight the contract you wish to rollover in the left side of the Instrument Manager window
    • Press the ">" button (the instrument will disappear from the list)
    • Press the "<" button and the instrument should re-appear with the front month expiration date

      So, did you mean that i won't get any data just by typing in "ES 03-12" in the chart without doing the rollover steps?

      Thanks

        Hello,

        You should be able to load data, however if this is not working I would suggest rolling over the symbol from the Instrument Manager to ensure you are loading the correct contract.

          Looks like I have to do the rollover steps. After I did the steps, I can load the data by just typing in "ES 03-12". What I don't understand is why designed this way. It takes some time the manually rollover all the symbols

          Thanks
