Problem loading OEC continous contracts

Postby BillM » 29 Mar 2016

I am having problems loading OEC continuous contracts in MC.

For instance, Nasdaq futures are NQM6 for the current contract. My broker told me that I can use @NQM6 and it should pull a current + adjusted backwards data. I can use it in the OEC platform, but I can't get it to work in MC 9.1

Suggestions?

What do you mean by "I can't get it to work"?

What steps have you taken?

Have you asked your broker if @NQM6 is a downloadable symbol?
Some brokers only provide the continuous contract on their own platform.

The data starts to load, but bars back a certain number of days are missing data and incomplete.

I may need to double check with the broker, but they said it should work as is with MC.

The symbol is @NQ not @NQM6

I'll try that.

Was just using what my broker told me to.
