When you click on the Daily Long Term button, the new chart will open in the chart window. The chart will also be listed as a new chart in your control panel under Active Charts. The symbol will be generated by using the commodity symbol followed by a dollar sign and LD for Long term Daily (Example: Cotton #2 would be CT$LD). Weekly Long Term and Monthly Long Term symbols will be generated the same way with commodity symbol, a dollar sign, and the month letter followed by LW for weekly or LM for monthly (Example: Cotton #2 for Long Term Monthly would look like CT$VLM).
