Automatic Contract Rollover

Postby sinotrader » 28 May 2007

Hello,
it would be great if you can have an automatic rollover feature like the one in TWS. A popup window that ask you if you would like to rollover to the following month. Changing both the symbol in QuoteManager and the symbol in the chart.

We are planning to have this feature in the future, but don't have any specified date yet.

Why change the symbol on the chart? or quote manager?
What it needs is a internal calendar in quote manager where the user
in each futures symbol properties can select the exact date for the automatic rollover of a standard predefined symbol "continuation" like ES #F
to the next month.
Like Ensign software does...
This is an important feature for those who want to maintain long history
for backtesting reasons...makes a traders life easier...

I agree totally...why can't Mutlicharts incorporate this feature sooner?
