    Rollover for the futures M6C 03-21 contract

    Hi

    I am using the latest NT8 8.0.23.2 and trying to do a rollover to the futures M6C 03-21 contract via Tools->Database Management


    problem is there is no contract month and no rollover defined for futures M6C 03-21. Can you fix the problem and add the 03-21 and other upcoming contracts for M6C ?

    There are contract months and rollovers defined for the 6C futures contract but not for the M6C contract which is the micro version of the 6C futures contract.


    Thank you for your help.

      Hi

      A log and trace of what ? there is no error message or anything. Its just that the contract months for M6C beyond 12-20 is not populated/defined in NT8 instruments database.

      I can send you a screenshot of the last contract months I have for M6C ... but I think you can verify that if you check it on your side by opening NT8 and opening the M6C instrument ? unless you are telling me that you can see contracts months for M6C beyond 12-20 ? like 03-21, 06-21, 09-21 etc ?

      Thanks

          Hello qewcool,

          Thank you for your response.

          Not sure if someone has already followed up with you via email, but I wanted to follow up here as well so that the solution is public. The symbol M6C has been delisted by the CME, which is why there is not an 03-21 expiry for that symbol. The appropriate symbol is MICD 03-21.

          Please let us know if we may assist you any further.

            under TWS with Interactive brokers, the symbol did not change. still MCD.


            1) under NT8 I see MICD under the instruments list and the last contract month for MICD is 03-21. nothing beyond 03-21. So the problem will be the same in 3 months ?


            2) can you confirm that both M6C and MICD under NT8 will download data using the symbol MCD from Interactive brokers ? if yes, is there a way to merge the chart for both M6C and MICD since they refer to the same symbol MCD under IB ?

            Thanks

              Hello qewcool,

              Thank you for your reply.

              1. No, we release updates to the instrument database that updates the expiries.

              2. No, M6C used the symbol M6C from Interactive Brokers but this instrument has been delisted by the CME. There would be no way to merge the charts of the two symbols, as they are technically different instruments.

                1) the updates to the instrument database is done automatically ? we dont have to update to another NT8 release on our side to get this update ?


                2) M6C (not M6E) was symbol MCD in TWS. There is no symbol M6C in TWS.

                Since M6C and MICD is technically the same data since it is a symbol change, is there a way to manually transfer (copy) the data from M6C to the MICD in NT8 database ?


                Thanks

                  Hello qewcool,

                  Thank you for your response.

                  1. Correct. Once the roll dates are added to the database on our server, they will be added to the platform with no additional action necessary on your end.

                  2. I apologize, I mistyped and meant to say M6C in my prior response. The underlying symbol mapping within NinjaTrader for each of these instruments is different, even if they are technically the same instrument. It is possible to manually move the data files from the M6C folder to the MICD folder from C:\Users\<YourUserName>\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\db.
