(* The following is for Future trading Only, if you trade on Forexs or Stocks, SKIP it!)
Rollover day is when we switch from trading the contract that will expire this quarter to the contract that will expire the following quarter.
The futures contract, e.g. e-mini S&P500 or ES expires on the third Friday of the months of March (H), June (M), September (U) and December (Z). The rollover days, however, are 8 days before expiration on the second Thursday of each of these months. These months have the letter designations H, M, U, and Z. Depending on the charting and trading platform that you're using you would usually have to switch your reference to the following month by letting the software know the contract and expiry month/year. On some trading platforms "ES H5" refers to the e-mini S&P contract that expires on the third Friday March 2005. On NinjaTrader however, it is using directly month, such ES 0901 which refer to ES September, 2001.
To solve and prevent hassle of headache rollover dates, both BacktestData historical data and market replay data are all in continuous format.
(NinjaTraer support continuous contract on backtesting/optimize/market replay, see screenshot below)
Simply backtest or run market replay on contract name, for example "ES ##-##",
you then do not need to switch over any contract. e.g. from ES 09-12 to ES 12-12.
In other words, you could backtest/optimizd your strategy like 15 years backtesting data in one click without manually switching months and determine the performance of your SuperDom and chart trading.
