Default How to auto transfer ES 06-17 to ES09-17?

In the default data series, there was a list of futures ES 06-17, NQ 06-17... ?
I thought it would auto transfer to ES 09-17, but it is not.
Do I have to manually modify each one?
How can I edit the expiry for all of them?

Can you please help me with this?

Thanks a lot.

Please follow the instructions below to roll over the expiration date of a futures contract.
  • From within the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the menu Tools> Instrument Manager
  • Highlight the contract you wish to rollover on the left side of the Instrument Manager window
  • Press the '>' button (the instrument will disappear from the list)
  • Press the '<' button and the instrument should re-appear with the front-month expiration date
  • Select 'OK'
  • Select the updated contract in the Instrument drop-down menu within your currently opened windows (Charts, SuperDOMs, etc).
I have provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over rolling over a futures contract.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. View Full Risk Disclosure.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
