    retrieving data

    Hello, i am trying to retrieve data ie closing prices of the CL 10-18 to use on chart and indicator. How far back in history should i be able to get to get the data for this contract which currently is not the front month? It seems i only get a days data when i load up the indicator. have Ninjatrader continuum data connection through ninjabrokerage

    EDIT:
    I think i know the issue - i need to adjust the merge policy in order to use prior data from today for the CL 10-18 as it hasnt rolled yet?

    thanks

    Hello explorer101,

    Thank you for post. You are correct, since the 10-18 contract rollover has not passed it's creating a conflict.

    If you do not want your charts to merge back past contracts, you can change your merge policy to 'Do Not Merge' under Control Center > Tools > Options > Market Data > Global Merge Policy.

    Otherwise, you can use the steps below to change the rollover date.

    Control Center > Tools > Instruments
    Locate and select 'CL' > Edit
    Scroll down and select 'Edit rollovers'
    Select the '10-18' contract from the 'configured' list
    Edit the 'rollover date' to any date prior to today > OK > OK > Close

    Right-click on your chart and select 'reload all historical data'


    Below I have provided a link to the Understanding Merge Policies section of the help guide.
