Re: CQG Up Vol Down Vol different Before and after 2/1 [SOLVED]

The reason behind this issue is that data coming from historical servers has also "Unchanged Vol" parameter which is not available in real-time. The issue should be fixed shortly (for historical data starting from the date of the fix). Thank you for reporting.
