oh yeah, you will get those errors unless you turn off historical data on the connection. there is no historical since they're not supported in any capacity (not to mention niche)

Hi can someone please clarify what the settings are for CQG data provider to get exchange traded calendar spreads
SodyTexas if you can screen shot what your final instrument settings are that would be great.

i'm looking for calendar spread for 12 month CL December 2015 to 2016

Thanks!!

I did already, keep in mind the way Ninjatrader will only do the forward month for some reason. so right now you can only do the 04/15 and 04/16 yearly cal spread.

i've set it up exactly like in your pics, i've chosen 04-15 for the contract month, but if i pull up a chart for that instrument i get nothing, but if i pull up a l2 i seem to be gettng the depth, if i pull up a T&S i get nothing.

what do you get?

if i choose 06-15 and 12-15 i get T&S (time and sales)
looking promising but still no chart.

ideally i would like to get the calendar spreads for CL 06-15 to 06-16 and CL 12-15 to 12-16
