1. You have to be subscribed to the same data type, live or delayed. So, maybe you have live ES data. That means you also must subscribe to live $TICK and $ADD data. You can;t miz live and delayed.

2. To trade continuous right now, it will be @ESH15.D - in mid March it will be @ESM15.D

Hey Kevin thanks for your help, i went over and switched to @ESH15.D but i am still getting nowhere with the $TICK and $ADD overlay. I tried to insert them both on the simulated and live trading account. I would call TradeStation and ask them all these questions, but unfortunately they can't help since the account is not under my name. I've recently gotten an account with a prop trading firm so everything i need, i have to contact them which i did and they were going to email me a guide of some sorts that i am still waiting on.

Thank you much,
Corpben.

P.S. i have to meet a post count before i can message or reply to the mentioned thread.

Is your data for ES live? If so, then your data for $TICK and $ADD also has to be live. You have to subscribe to the real time data packages. Help / Account Services / Add/Remove Data or Features

Thanks again, but i'll have to give the guys at the prop firm a call and have them go through it for me. I'll update the post to let you know how it went.

Thanks much,
