How can I get continuous chart data in Kite?

Since all futures contracts are traded for a maximum of 3 months, the chart data for a contract is only available for this period.

You can check older charts of previously expired contracts of the scrip in ChartIQ by enabling continuous data under Display>Chart Preferences:

A continuous futures chart categorizes all historical future contracts into current, near, and far months. So when you open a current month historical chart, it pulls data from all current months historically, plots, and displays the chart.

For example, in July - July is the current month, in June - June would've been the current month, in May- May would've been the current month, and so on. All that data is combined to show one continuous futures chart.

Note:

1. Continuous data is only available for day candles.

2. Continuous data is only available for Equity Futures and Commodity contracts. It is currently not available for the Currency segment.
