Can you tell me when your @EU#C automatically rolls to September as the front month? What are your rules for the roll (volume based, time based etc)?

Could you tell me how I could achieve this manually? Ie a @EU#C with September as the front month?

I currently use your feed with multicharts.

Kind regards,

the @EU#C will roll at end of session today and will display the next contract at start of new session.
it is set by time to roll 2 trading days prior to experation.

We do have the rules for the contracts on our web site www.iqfeed.net under the symbol guide

I understand that the EU rolls over 3 days prior to contract month expiration. I went to the symbol part of the website, but have not found where this information is.
I trade future currencies, energies, grains, indices, metals, interest instruments etc. Is there a pdf file that contains DTN IQ's procedure for contract roll overs? Thanks.

Roll rules can be diffrent for each commodity, so we list them by commodity root.

On the IQFeed.net Symbol Guide page (http://www.iqfeed.net/symbolguide/index.cfm?symbolguide=guide&displayaction=support§ion=guide&web=iqfeed) there is a box listing Future exchanges, click on an exchange link and the commodity roots for that exchange will be listed with roll rules for each.
