Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree but I wonder if there are many users that trade futures with OT. If there was a way that futures traders could have a separate forum it would be easier to collaborate.
With that collaboration maybe the resources could be gathered to fix some of the things missing in OT.
Recently I became aware that the holiday database for futures has not been updated for years. That leaves gaps in the data that severely degrades system testing, especially in intra-day data. That can be edited by users but that is a huge job.
I understand ROI for Nirvana but I for one would promote OT to other futures traders for the fantastic features if some of the basic things like OI, an adjustable roll for continuous contracts and Holidays were built in.
Here's hoping!

There's a Futures & Forex 'room' here. There's not enough activity though to warrant an entire forum.

Hi Barry,

How about LSJ's other suggestions regarding OI, an adjustable roll for continuous contracts and Holidays?

Even though they aren't in a prettier or easy to use format, they are currently adjustable in the database.

I couldn't find where to adjust roll - can you give some details on where that can be done.
Thanks
