How to roll over?

Postby Splint » 18 Jul 2012


I rolled into September ZN tonight, being my first ever attempt to roll it was a bit of a mess, but goth there in the end. Is there any documentation on how to roll over where automated trading is in use? I'd like to make sure I get it right next time.

Hello David,

1) Add the contract you need to rollover to (from the data source if lookup feature is available).
2) MultiCharts does not rollover the positions automatically. You need to contact your broker to do that (if it allows doing that) or move your position manually.
3) Auto Trading should be disabled.
4) In the symbol mapping Broker symbol should be set to the contact you need to rollover to.
