Default Add method in an index

I am using the kinetic data feed

In the instrument manager I made an new instrument list
Dti and added in BH ##-##

In the historical data manager I see there is 1 years worth of data

In the indicator script

Add("BH ##-##", PeriodType.Day,1);// Heating Oil 1


But I get zeros, any reason for this?

Thank you for your post.

You should not need bars in progress.

Please try setting your Daily charts to the Default 24/7 session template.
  • Right click in your chart and select Data Series.
  • In the Data Series menu, set the "Session Template" property to "Default 24/7", then click OK.

Please let me know if you continue to experience issues.

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.
