Re: Custom Futures - no appropriate rollover setting for GC

Gold traders usually only rollover 5 times a year using the feb, april, june, august and dec
contracts.
So you may could uncheck the oct (V) contract at "Select contracts to Use" as the oct contract does not play a role in gold, then it should roll directly from Q to Z.

Re: TWS disconnects during trading hours frequently

Upgraded to Build 924.2e March 2012. On my side it is still the cashfarm that cause the problems.

I avoided till now to connect to the IB Gateway as i cant see all account information and fills directly, but has somebody tried if the problems occur with the IB Gateway?

Re: If Barstatus = 0 then Begin... Not always detected

You could reset the value with each bar instead of t>t[1] with

if currentbar>this.bar then
begin //if new bar
this.bar=currentbar;

High[1], Low[1], Time[1], Time;
