    Connecting for first time

    I just downloaded Ninjatrader and signed up for the free CQG live demo data. I'm able to successfully connect to CQG, but it does not look like I'm receiving any data.

    On the "Orders" tab, under <Default>, I'm only given options for expired contracts (e.g. ES 03-16). When I randomly choose a DOW 30 stock, The "bid, ask, last" box to the left of the order entry box does not populate with any numbers, like I see it do on instructional videos:

    Furthermore, when I go to file-->new--> chart, the only options under default are contracts expiring on 03-16. When I again randomly choose a stock from the DOW 30, nothing populates the charts like in this video:

    YD777,
    The NinjaTrader Continuum demo does not support Stock data.
    Please follow the instructions below to roll over the expiration date of a futures contract.

    From within the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the menu Tools> Instrument Manager
    Highlight the contract you wish to rollover on 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
    Select 'OK'
    Select the updated contract in the Instrument drop-down menu within your currently opened windows (Charts, SuperDOMs, etc).
    I have provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over rolling over a futures contract.

    To view contract rollover, expiry dates, and other trading events click the link below.

      Thanks, now it works.

      One last thing, does the demo CQG data give bid/ask? I am only getting Last to populate, but in the video I watched, the free demo gave bid/ask data as well.

        Oh, it suddenly started working. Not sure why. But I now have bid/ask.

          YD777,
          The Demo data feed will supply ask and bid for supported futures instruments.
