"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email

What is your preferred method for contract roll processing on front month contracts (continuous contracts)?

My charting softward, Ensign Windows, provides a number of choices, but it seems that the 8th of the expiration month is the popular practice

A choice to roll:

1. with volume increase
2. With increase in OI
3. Roll when BOTH OI and Volume increase
4. User defined Roll-date -- i.e. 8 days before contract expiration

Did you folks ever implement this contract roll improvement? it looks like 80% want it to roll based on volume. CQG rolls this way as well it would be great to implement this.

Hello JPM,

We have been working on this project and expect to have a new continuous contract for the grains available in 2013 - but I do not have a specific date yet. Thank you for your interest.

Todd, it would be best if you folks did this also for energy, softs and index contracts such as the e-mini S&P. It looks like you folks are focusing just on grains for this feature (based on your comment). Other platforms such as CQG roll contracts this way.

Do you know when in 2013 this feature will be available?

Hello jpm,

We already have rollover rules for the contracts that you mentioned that are designed to stay in the more active months. We mention the grains above because they still roll on expiration date in IQFeed. If you are interested, you can see the rollover dates on the Symbol Guide pages at www.iqfeed.net - they are listed with the symbols under their corresponding exchange links. Thank you.
