Custom futures and real time trading

Postby ilt000 » 14 Apr 2011

Dear Support,

My datafeed is IB, I have created the custom futures of many symbols that I use to trade and I have plotted on a workspace 2 charts:

1 chart with the custom future of NG (displaying NGK1) and 1 chart with the NGK1 symbol.

I've noticed that the custom future chart receive the data with some delay (sometime some seconds) with respect to the chart of NGk1 that updates correctly.

Is it normal? Perhaps the custom future is for only backtesting?

Thank You for the support
Regards

I've uploaded to Beta2 and i noticed that the custom future I've created doesn't roll in the correct way:

- On the chart of the HG custom future I receive the data from the HGN1 instead of the HGK1 data. I've chose like "Rollover condition" 2 trading days prior to Expiration Date (expiration of HGK1 is 26/05/2011).
Then I try with the condition of 1 day of higher Volume but also in this case the custom future roll on HGN1 without that the condition on volume is true.

what am I missing?
Thank You
Best
