    Playback with past contracts in futures (FDAX)

    Hi!

    I trade the DAX Future, FDAX, which is formed by trimestral contracts. I need help to manage the following situation. I'm importing data from Market Replay Data Downloader for the Playback connection, but I don't know how to access it to do the playback.

    I have no problem when importing the data, but when I open my graphs, they will always open with the realtime contract, in this case, FDAX 03-20. How can I open past contracts (for example, FDAX 06-17) to work with them? I have already all the data in, as the image shows.

    In NT7, it used to be as simple as choosing the expiry when selecting the instrument from Instrument Lists, but I don't get to know how to do it in NT8.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi alvarosiegar, thanks for your post.

    To replay historical data, select "Historical" on the replay controller while you are connected to the replay connection. To switch contracts you can just type in "FDAX 06-17" to the chart and press enter, this will load any contract you specify.

    Please let me know if this does not resolve your inquiry.

      That simple typing "FDAX 06-17" was what I was looking for. Thank you very much!
