So I just switched to ES 12-11 contract, and I thought I've specified to use a continuous contract for Sierra, but it isn't loading the ES 09-11 contract properly in the chart window (see image).

What am I missing?

my layman way is just rename the old contract file name to the new contract file name. I also carry over the drawing from the old symbol; Chart Settings >> More Settings >> Show Chart Drawings for Different Symbols.

It works on mine with TT datafeed, it may have to do with the symbol you are using, I seem to remember you can't use ES#, have to use ESZ11, etc.

The edit - refresh did not help. What I ended up doing was modifying the lookback period from 30 days to 120 days, and then it properly re-downloaded the data and merged the contracts.
