    Oil July contract data

    It looks like there are some issues with the CL 07-20 contract data, as the chart looks different every time I reload the data. Is it something wrong?

    Hello itrader46,

    Thank you for your note.

    The CL 07-20 doesn't rollover in NinjaTrader until 5/14/20. If you want to rollover before that and continue to merge past contracts, you will need to adjust the rollover date:
    • Control Center > Tools > Instruments
    • Locate and select 'xx' > Edit
    • Scroll down and select 'Edit rollovers'
    • Select the 'xx-xx' 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'
    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.

    Below I have provided a link to the Understanding Merge Policies section of the help guide.Let us know if we may assist further.

      So I can only trade current, but not future contracts, right?

        Hello,

        Thank you for the reply.

        No, you are certainly free to trade the 07-20 contract. The reason it displays differently before 'rollover' is because of the way NinjaTrader merges futures contracts together. Performing this rollover task will cause the chart to display correctly but you are free to trade it regardless.

        Please let us know if you have any further questions.
