Historical Market Data
You choose when and how your continuous futures contracts roll from one month to the next, and TradeStation does all of the work. You can use TradeStation's automatic continuous contracts, or you can choose the specific months to include in the continuous contract, the data series on which to base the continuous data, the rollover trigger event, and the back adjustment method. All of these allow you to view the market and run your back testing differently to help you find what works best for you.
