That is not true!
I always had the volume on my market analyzer so that I could watch the volume when you get close to the rollover day and normally I was always trading the new contract 2 or 3 days before rollover and when I opened the new trading chart with the new contract that charts was not merged yet because I was switching before the rollover day only on the next Monday that new contract was merged because that merging stuff is done in the weekend following the rolloverday.
I work like that for about 5 years now!
Just compare the 2 charts one is an ES 3-14 chart and the other is a 6-14 ES chart.
The 6-14 ES chart is showing the data from the 3-14 chart!
Your own words: This is a result of using the Merge Policy which will use the same historical bar data until the pre-defined rollover date in NinjaTrader.
So if you use a instrument with a date past that rollover date the data is not merged wright? And that is not the case!
Your image and your response verifies the statement of behavior I have made in my prior posts.
6-14 rollover is in March of 14 --> Chart today on 12/26, it will use the prior month (3-14) historical data when merge policies are set to merge. That's what your chart image shows and what is expected.
If this is still not clear, I think it is best that you discuss this with one of my customer service reps. You can send in an email to our support, ask for Matthew and reference this post.
I see that you still use NT version 16, can you post here 2 charts example ES 15 min 3-14 and ES 15 min 6-14 with the mergepolicy enabled? Thanks
I have tried to install the version back to version 16 but cannot do it. It is just to show Ninjatrader that the chart loaded from 6-14 is not merged even when the mergepolicy is enabled. That is how NT was working sinds I used it from day 1.
there are two merge policy options, which one is best?, or being referenced here in conversation?, not that that improves or changes the outcome
this is a worthless upgrade from ZenFire, if they're going to cripple the sophisticated retail investors with incomplete data, thus handing the pros's another victory over the ever dwindling average Joe's, (again)
I have talked with Matthew from ninjatrader today over skype and he told me that zenfire and ninjatrader are working on a update so the dailyvolume will be back in the market analyzer.
For no we have to go to the website of the cme group to see the volume or turn of the mergepolicy so we can get the wright volume for the contract month on the market analyzer. For me it is only applicable when we approach the rolloverday.
