    Loading a continous contract

    I am trying to load a continuous NQ contract. I have selected NQ XX-XX and made the usual adjustments like I would for a range based chart but no data is loading. What am I doing wrong?

      The symbol for a continuous contract is ##-##, so for the NQ you would enter "NQ ##-##". I received your email and will be following up there as well.

        Hello,

        I just noticed that IB provides Continuous Contracts now (and probably since some time). Pls. see https://interactivebrokers.github.io...racts.html#fut

        If I understand the description right, Cont. Contracts are setup as a new instrument type: contract.SecType = "CONTFUT";

        Also there seem to be a growing number of brokers/ data providers who provide there kind of data, at least for historical data (rather than for direct trading). Could you please check to implement this instrument type in NT as well? It would simplify the data collection and rollover administration significantly for all futures traders, I guess.

        Or is there an alternative way to receive these contracts (e.g. as a custom contract?) in NT already?

        Many thanks,
        Joerg

          Hello Joerg,

          Thank you for your note.

          While I am unaware of an alternative way to currently receive these contracts in the platform, I've submitted your inquiry to our development team as a feature request.

          Let us know if we may assist further.

            Hello Chris ,

            im having problem loading continuous contracts data, i have market data from IB and when i load a daily candlestick chart for more than a year, the chat shows just a year, i tried ES and CL, and also try the CL ##-## but NT message is: Error requesting bars series: Please verify symbol mapping is correct for CL ##-##.

            Thank you
