Re: ESZ2 daily wrong [SOLVED]

Have checked on 8.5 beta 1. MC chart = TWS when unchecking Regular Trading Hours in the settings of the data source. It is wise to have added "for daily-based data only" because this clearly shows that daily data download does not use at all the session settings. This was not obvious.

Had kept 1 position overnight. When market opened at 8:00, the position was still not displayed. I had to disconnect and reconnect to TWS to make MC find the position.

Re: ESZ2 daily wrong [SOLVED]

So is it possible to have - a daily chart displaying ESZ2 with RTH - another daily chart displaying ESZ2 with all trading hours And, more generally, is it possible to display a daily chart of 1 symbol with only RTH, and another daily chart of another symbol (6EZ2 for example) with all trading hours ?

ESZ2 daily wrong [SOLVED]

After several attempts, I cannot find the way to make MC display correctly ESZ2 on a daily chart.
b_Pict1 is the correct chart (TWS).
b_Pict2 is the chart with MC.
I have highlighted the 11/14/12 candle.
In QM ESZ2 is configured with the default session times (see b_Pict3).
