Feed Question/Issue

Hi,
I have noticed that using both IB and Opentick as feeds that when the IB feed starts requesting data and hits the pacing violation wall it slows the Opentick feed down and sometimes blocks it. Are the two seperate pipes in the request channel ? They seem to be in series and not parallel.

Array

Hi All,
Does anyone know a way to sort a array of data to determine how many times a value is the same. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Opentick Feed Issue

Hi, I am still having issues with opentick and MC. It seems Opentick's supplier of data likes to spike the OHLC at the close of the session which screws up charts and indicators. I Went into the quote manager and deleted the bogus ticks but my chart still shows the spike bar. How do I tell the chart...

Indicators State Machine

Hi, I was wondering if Andrew or someone who wrote the functions in MC could answer a quick question. I have developed a custom trading script using TradeCommander's DLL interface to IB. This allows me to send trades to IB automatically from a indicator. The issue I have noticed is when I have a tri...

Hi Marina,
Sorry I did not get back to you sooner. I am running tick charts only when I see this 1 bar compression issue. I would like to email you a pic showing the issue if I can. Please let me know where to send it.

Hi Marina,
The next time I catch it I will snap a picture and show you what I mean. What happens is it will compress a long time into 1 bar and this causes a huge bar on the chart.

Hi
I figured out the compile issue. It seems if you are not logged in as a Admin on the local machine it causes MC not to compile or work correctly.
I have no idfea why that would matter, but when I log back into the local box instead of the network I am on it works fine.

Well it appears the problem can me migrated to a different machine by exporting a XML file.
I now have the issue on two different machines.
Does anyone know of a decent timer routine I could use instead of this function ?
Thanks

Compile Issue

Hi, I ran into a weird issue with a function I have been using for months. It will not compile and gives the error listed below on one of my machines. It works just fine on the other. Is there a way to tell what DLL is used in MC to functions so I can try to isolate the issue and correct it ? I have...

OpenTick Feed Issues

Hi I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing a issue with getting data from Opentick. I have noticed that sometimes I get gaps in my chart randomly. If I request more data past the point, it still leaves the gap. If I delete the symbol from the quote manager and add it back in the issue is stil...

This is a free API that should allow you to do things intrabar. So far it has solved my dilema of needing to make trades intrabar. Some day hopefully soon MC will too have this capabilities Since the new forum rules won't allow me to post a address to the API you can find it on IB web site under fre...
