    01-17 charts wont load

    Hello,

    I can not get CL 01-17 chart to load. I know my formatting is correct but it seems no 2017 charts will load. What is going on here?

    In case it matters I am using Continuum for my data feed.

    Regards
    Brian

    CL will move to CL 01-17 on the 21st November.

    Until then, use CL 12-16

    Cheers

      Thanks Pete but that is not correct. 12-16 expires on 11-20, 01-17 is an active chart on my TDAmerican account and most people have already rolled over to the January contract. Its not just January that is a problem there are many other active contracts that there is no reason for me not to have access to. I sould have access to all charts and can roll over any time I chose.

        Can you elaborate on what you mean when you say "I can not get CL 01-17 chart to load."?

        What exactly is occurring? Is not data at all present in your chart window? Is data present, but not updating? Could you include a screenshot of your CL 01-17 chart?

        To send a screenshot with Windows 7 or newer I would recommend using Window's Snipping Tool.

        http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...#1TC=windows-8

        Alternatively to send a screenshot press Alt + PRINT SCREEN to take a screenshot of the selected window. Then go to Start--> Accessories--> Paint, and press CTRL + V to paste the image. Lastly, save as a jpeg file and send the file as an attachment.

          Patrick,

          When I get the data series box up I type in CL 01-17 and click new nothing happens, the right side of the box does not fill out giving me chart options. So the exact same thing that would happen if I put in the wrong Data series format like CL 1-17 nothing happens.

          I could give you a screenshot but I don't see that being helpful, you would just see the empty data series box with the proper CL 01-17

          I also tried a few more charts, it appears that no 2017 charts can be brought up.

          Regards
          Brian

                As a test, please rename your database. We can reverse this if it does not resolve what is occurring.

                You can rename your database by following the steps below.
                • Shutdown NinjaTrader and Go to the Start Menu
                • Select My Documents--> NinjaTrader 7--> DB--> NinjaTrader.SDF.
                • Right click on NinjaTrader.SDF and select "Rename." *Name it "OLDNinjaTrader.SDF."
                • Then restart the software and NinjaTrader will create a fresh database file to use
                • Unfortunately the following items stored in the old database will be lost - ATM Strategy templates, Session templates, Instrument Lists / Custom Instruments, historical trade execution data, saved Strategy Analyzer backtest results

                To prevent running into situations where you can potentially lose important data, we advise to run regular backups via our inbuilt backup feature in NinjaTrader.

                  Patrick,

                  Still the same problem. I didn't have anything saved I was worried about losing so no problem there.

                          I guess the tab under help in NT7 software doesn't work. I sent it to you manually

                          Regards

                            I have the same problem. The 01-17 CL doesn't load. I mean even if the rollover was on 21, why can't we have access to forward contracts?

                              Altia,

                              Phone support gave me a solution the may work for you.

                              In control center click on tools
                              Then Insrument Manager
                              Change type to futures.
                              In the name field enter CL then click search.
                              Underneath your search results you will have Exchange and expiry.
                              If the expiry section is correct with 01-17 click the arrow on the left hand side of Exchange to add it to your default list.

                              This was a quick easy fix that worked for me. It should work for anything.

                              Regards
                              Brian
