  1. sorry if this is a stupid question with an obvious answer. did anyone just notice ZG spike up to 564.30, get stuck on the charts, and continue trading from the pre-spike level of ~559?
  2. Happens all the time in the e-cbot markets, sometimes as much as 10 bucks away from the pit.
  3. @ZG in ts is still stuck and I notice @YG did it too.

    odd that it happened where and when it did. did anyone on other charting platforms experience this spike in april ZG
  4. you might have bad data from your feed

    the highs were under $562 for both ZG and YG
    april 2006 gold CBOT today ....
  5. thanks for posting those, yes you're totally right. in the end it was a mistake at tradestation incorrectly rolling the contract forward mid-day. same type of issue happened last week with @QM. what i'm learning as i start trading commodities is to do more homework on expirations and not trust the continuous symbols cuz they have been wrong twice in a month on me. user beware

    i really should have had it all mapped out completely before getting involved. i do now

    thx man
