Hello bensat,

Most likely the volume on the U16 contract was higher than the volume on the M16 contract on the 25th (which was a holiday), therefore the custom futures switched to the U16 contract (in case your rollover condition is 1 day of higher volume).

There are two ways to address that:
1) disable the option “Show data on holidays” in QuoteManager->Tools->Holidays.
2) in the custom futures settings change the Rollover Condition to “2 days of higher volume”.
You can apply both solutions. Both of them require closing your existing workspace with the custom futures chart and opening it up again.
