NQ + Zen-Fire Continuous Contract?

  1. I'm using NinjaTrader.

    Anyone know how to create something like a 200 day chart for the NQ? Zen-Fire doesn't support continuous contracts.

    Any way to plot the cash index?
  2. Closest thing to that would be adding yahoo end of day historical data(its free)....... see the video at the link below

  3. Zen-Fire doesn't directly but NinjaTrader 7 does.

    Look in the Instrument Editor for Merge policy. It can be set to MergeBackAdjusted or MergeNonBackAdjusted - your choice. You can also see and/or edit the rollover days and the backAdjust offsets in the Misc Tab. Scroll down to Contract months and click on the little button. NinjaTrader predefines 28 contract rollover days.

    This is a great new feature of Ninjatrader 7.
