Hello cktsui888,

Building a continuous futures data series in MultiCharts is called Custom Futures.
Please refer to this guide to learn how to configure it:
http://www.multicharts.com/trading-soft ... om_Futures
Rollover of custom futures dataseries cannot be done in realtime. You need to close/open the chart/scanner/portfolio to rollover.

In order to place orders from a custom futures chart in MultiCharts/Portfolio Trader – that is required to manually add Symbol Mapping entry: Custom Futures to current front month contract/the one you need to trade.
Here is how to do that:
http://www.multicharts.com/trading-soft ... ol_Mapping
You will need to manually remap the custom futures/continuous contract to the front month contract when futures rollover.
MultiCharts will not cancel and replace the orders with the new contract month.
You need to do that manually or contact your broker for assistance.
