Continuous contract (CC) works with IB data.

It is possible that if the prior contract data is no longer available for download and if it has not already been collected by MC, it will not be possible to construct the CC.

Thank you. Very nice. Make sure exchange setting set to Globex for IB.

Would this be a tradeable instrument (as in @ESM10 would be tradeable in TS) ?

All the info you seek are provided by TS format symbol, properties.

You can also set up ARCX in Quotemanager by looking at the Edit Exchange & ECN using NYSE as an example, the settings should be the same except fo the name and abbr.

Try the point(original).
Try earlier vesions of MC, such as MC3.1.
They all give different results.

After reading all the previous comments, I must say that the DRM sounds more "user friendly".... If TSSupport can guarantee that MC will work at least 30 minutes after all DRM servers went down, I think that's more then enough time to rearrange all positions before the connection is cut off....

Re: Does anyone have Williams' R indicator code?

Hi all,

I am looking for Williams' R indicator which is not available in MC.

Could anyone share the code plz ?
MC (and TS) has it under "%R", which is normally what it is called. It uses the function "PercentR", which is basically what the previous poster has posted.
