brodnicki steven,

Thanks.

Following your steps, I can get current contract data but nearest expired data is missing although I have data on my PC.

Please can you advise if you have complete data.

Kingjelly,

I tried following and it worked in SA Mode:

Value1=MarketPosition_at_Broker ;

if C > C[1] then buy next bar at Market;

if BarsSinceEntry >1 and Value1 > 0 then sell next bar at market;
