Actually, short only under 97.00. But holiday volume is almost impossible for me to read so finding an entry is doubtful today. Selling 96.30-96.60 is probably my only interest right now... but it is hard to sell in light volume.

No, that is wrong also. I'll figure it out in the morning.

The previous chart shows resistance levels as if the March contract were going to continue. However, since today I am rolling to April, and since April was trading higher, I have never really put that much thought into how to blend SR levels in higher timeframes. I changed the rollover date in Instrument Manager from the 19th to the 16th, to the 9th, and then built SR using what was shown,and with each change the stucture was different. And attempted to consolidate my thoughts here several times, then deleted them again.

I have always allowed the data to rollover automatically, but have never attempted to notice if the reactions occured at different levels in relation to the prior month data, or if the levels were not as responsive within the first few days. But it seems like, wwith April trading at roughly 50 cents premium, any response should be at a higher level, if at all.

So I am going to allow NT to use it's default rollover of 2/19/13, but not use fib ratios until new lines have formed.

This NinjaTrader roll over fiasco is getting rather a joke!

You would have though they would have got it right by now

My data has been driving me mad all morning....given up now. Have to work with what we have got

NinjaTrader 8 had better have all this issues sorted or ill be looking for a new platfourm

It is a condition that should be given some thought though. April traded at roughly 50 cents higher, and that wreaks havoc with indicators and prior structure, at least within the closest timeframes.
