To me it looks you are comparing two different things, being a simple futures contract series and a synthetic continuous contract.

You need to see what are the rules for creating the continuous series...

I don't think that on the date 19.06.15, the FDAX 12-15 is the correct front month.

You need to ask yourself, what do you want to backtest and what do you want to achieve ?
Do you want to reproduce, what you would/could have done at that point in time, trading the front month ?
