Re: How to Lift Limitation on Bars Per Day?

Also, use 24 hour sessions. With this symbol, default sessions may serve as a workaround and mask the underlying problem.

Re: How to Lift Limitation on Bars Per Day?

This can be easily seen if you construct a chart of ES #F (Esignal symbol format) or ES U1 with 1 contract bars.

Re: How to Lift Limitation on Bars Per Day?

The issue is not the maximum bars per chart but the maximum bars per DAY or trading session. I already have HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\MultiCharts\Shaper\MaxBarsCount at 20,000,000; the limit of 1,000,000 bars per DAY (ie trading session) remains regardless.

How to Lift Limitation on Bars Per Day?

There appears to be a 1,000,000 bar limit on bars per trading interval (i.e. per day of trading). Some very active symbols can currently exceed this, resulting in the first part of each day being dropped from the chart when it is reloaded. What registry entry do I change to correct this?

IQ Feed does not update in real time after regular trading hours (for example after 4:00 PM eastern time for US stocks).
