Minute / Hourly Data

Hey there,

I am loading an 8 hour chart and every time I open it it seems to be downloading all the data again. How can I make sure it uses the stored data and only download the newest data?

Forget the last comment about the templates...they work fine.

But the minimize issue is as described above.

Thanks.

I did as you suggested. However, I still get the same problem. The issue, remember, is that in my workspace I would close it with, say, 2 charts open and 1 chart minimized. When I open the chart it should restore to where it was last minimized from (i.e. center of workspace). Instead it restores to ...

Here are the steps to reproducing the problem of disappearing windows. 1. Open up a NEW workspace. 2. Open, say, 3 or 4 charts. 3. Minimize one chart. 4. Save and close the workspace. 5. Open up the workspace and try to restore the minimized chart. Depending on your resolution and screen size you ma...

I think maybe I my workspace file was corrupted. Both problems I posted I could not reproduce in a new workspace. I have been working in the one workspace to get my templates working and such. So, perhaps something went wrong with the file at some point. I'll start with new workspaces and see if I e...

Performance Problem

Hi there, With regards to downloading data - this is ok. What it is doing (as far as I understand) is running through all the ticks on the local database ticks and calculating (on the fly) each tick bar. So, for example, if I load a 30 tick chart, it runs through every 30 ticks to calculate the high...

Hi there, When I have a workspace open with multiple charts, I occassionally minimize some windows to manage my space. However, everytime I try to restore a mimimized chart it disappears. It does not close since I can still see it undere the Windows menu. Also, when I select it from the Windows menu...

Data Problem

Hey there,

I connect to IQFeed. I am able to create a symbol in QuoteManager and even load data. But my chart "hangs".

I have attached a document to show the problem.

Any ideas?

Ok, I understand that. But is there any way to hide the session breaks on my chart - they look really choppy.

Also, what is your estimated time for implementing local storage of data (with only necessary updates)?

Follow up... It appears that the session breaks are more of an issue than just display. Despite me setting a tick bar size the session break seems to break whatever bar it's at. 1. For instance, if I set a 4000 tick bar chart - at 5pm EST (Session Break), it will break up my bar even if it is at les...

Hey there, Tick data is looking good. Referring back to a previous concern with the "empty" bars at session breaks. Is there anyway to hide these? It really makes my indicators look choppy. I already tried UNchecking "Show Empty Periods" on the X- Time Scale tab on the window format but to no avail....

That's fine. But I am curious to know the caching mechanism. I will have 3-4 tick charts (large ones) multiplied by 10 - 15 workspaces. So, that is about 30 - 60 tick charts. Will each of these charts have to be reloaded from the server everytime I open MCFX? Or is the local cache for data stored on...

Actually, it IS there on your screen shot. You see the vertical grid lines that separate the "sessions"? That session break is exactly 17:00 (5pm EST) of each day. If you left click on that grid line you will see information for that tick bar. That's why it looks like a gap between bars - when there...

Not sure what you mean.... In a tick chart you can also see what the time is on each bar. Everytime 17:00 (5pm EST) rolls around the tick bar has only 1 tick on it. I am at work and cannot send a screen shot till tonight. However, if you open up a tick chart (say 500 ticks per bar), start going back...

Tick Charts

One of the reasons I am trying you guys is for the data feed and tick charts specifically.

I am trying to load a tick chart with 2430 tick bars. Despite how far back I set the settings it won't go back beyond June 22/23.

Please tell me this is just a setting and not a limitation......
