I'm not sure if Trading Technologies has a "continuous contract". I use eSignal as a data feed and they have a continuous contract symbol "6E #F", that's the Euro currency continuous contract.

As far as I know the strategy you develop is independent of whatever broker you use for execution. Another words the EasyLanguage code itself is the same regardless of whether you use IB or any other execution broker.

A reinstallation of the Beta corrected the compiler error?

Did you uninstall first?

I also got a clean compile on the older version and the same errors on the Beta.

try this procedure:

On QM, import the ES data that you bought into the one that you already have from IB.

Next time you connect to IB, the chart should start to update from there.

At least, for me, this was the solution merging IQFeed data with eSignal data. I must thanks Anastassia for this tip.

Depending on what data feed you use you should be able to get the interest rates. In the esignal data feed you need to subscribe to an additional service called GovPIX then you can acccess the int rate version of the chart.

Are you asking how to set up the eSignal Symbol Dictionary for eSignal Autotrading or MultiCharts?

In eSignal you need to intall the latest IB pluging and use the Symbol Dictionary which creates an entry in an XML file that equates the eSignal with the IB symbol.
