How select Futures contract for its own order condition

Hi Everyone,

I have implemented several Futures contract in my code,

I have different conditions for each Futures to place orders. In this case i have to check which contract must be selected.

I tried that :

public override void OnData(Slice slice)
{
if (!Portfolio.Invested)
{
foreach(var chain in slice.FutureChains)
{

// find the front contract expiring no earlier than in 90 days
var contract = (from futuresContract in chain.Value.OrderBy(x => x.Expiry) where futuresContract.Expiry > Time.Date.AddDays(90) select futuresContract).FirstOrDefault();

// if found, perform logic
if (contract != null && contract.LastPrice != 0)
{
if (contract.StartsWith("ES"))

{

 But the line :

if (contract.StartsWith("ES"))

return an access violation due to its protection level.

How can i do ?

Hi Everyone,

Does the code below seem correct to you?

var contractSP500 = (from futuresContract in chain.Value.OrderBy(Symbol => Symbol).ThenBy(x => x.Expiry)
where futuresContract.Symbol.Contains("ES")
where futuresContract.Expiry > Time.Date.AddDays(90)
select futuresContract).FirstOrDefault();

var contractDOW30 = (from futuresContract in chain.Value.OrderBy(Symbol => Symbol).ThenBy(x => x.Expiry)
where futuresContract.Symbol.Contains("YM")
where futuresContract.Expiry > Time.Date.AddDays(90)
select futuresContract).FirstOrDefault();
I get this RunTime Error below, but i don't know if it's these var contract in trouble or an other block of code.

I am finding it ! :D

var contractSP500 = (from futuresContract in chain.Value.OrderBy(x => x.Symbol == "ES").ThenBy(x => x.Expiry)
where futuresContract.Expiry > Time.Date.AddDays(90)
select futuresContract).FirstOrDefault();

var contractDOW30 = (from futuresContract in chain.Value.OrderBy(x => x.Symbol == "YM").ThenBy(x => x.Expiry)
where futuresContract.Expiry > Time.Date.AddDays(90)
select futuresContract).FirstOrDefault();

It seems they are no effect to apply

OrderBy(x => x.Symbol == "ES").

But :

if (contractSP500.Symbol.StartsWith("ES"))
MarketOrder(contractDOW30.Symbol, 10);
Debug("contract en cours : " + chain.Value.Symbol);
Debug("contract en cours : " + contractDOW30);

Have one

Hi Gmamuze,

Thank you for your effort trying to solve the problem yourself. Could you please provide your full algorithm for further assistance?
