    Multi instrument chart - change one instrument

    Scenario: I have a chart with multiple instruments. Is there a way to change one of the instruments? For example after roll over can I change the contract period. Currently I just remove the instrument and add one back then apply a saved template to get my indicators back for that instrument.

    I didn't know of there was as simpler way.

    Hello ct,

    Please see the link below under 'How to change a Data Series' for instructions to change instruments in charts.

    Changing and Adding Instruments and Intervals via Keyboard
    You can change instruments or intervals by pressing a letter or number key in a selected chart. Within the window that appears, you can change the instrument, interval, or chart type by using the following formats and pressing the "Enter" key when finished. If multiple instruments are displayed in the chart, you can change a specific instrument by left mouse clicking to select it before typing. If no instrument is selected, the primary instrument is changed.


    To change an instrument:
    Type the instrument symbol. (Add the front month for futures instruments) Examples: "ES 12-09" for E-mini S&P 500, "AAPL" for Apple stock or "EURUSD" for Euro/U.S. dollar Forex pair.

          Hello,

          This type of change must be made within the Data Series menu itself. To access the Data Series menu, right click in the chart and select Data Series. Once in that menu, remove the series you wish to change and add another in it's place.

            In this case none of the preset indicators remain intact.I`d like to keep my indicators intact which are linked to each symbol.

              Hello,

              Unfortunately, this is the only way that the change can be made to secondary data series in a multi-series chart.

                  Hello,

                  There is a display limitation of 9 symbols in the same chart as you have outlined.
