Re: Optimizing Time

Not sure what you mean that those times are not understood. If you use a starttime > 1075 it still returns results. If it was not understood you would think that it would return no results.

Can you check with the developers what it means?

You can't optimize over time simply by adding values for the reason you explained. You end up with nonsensical times like 1075.

Here are the screenshots. I just opened my charting after hours started flipping through charts and noticed GS was missing data again.

I have also sent the logs to Marina.

I'm surprised no one else has been noticing this issue again.

Esignal Missing Daily Data Part II

Sad to report that this issue is back.

The way it manifested itself with me is by opening daily charts after hours from my Market Scanner.

I will be sending the logs to the support team and have talked to them about this issue. If anyone else is having this issue again please post here.

Most of my charts say this in the title bar of my detached chart windows. If I type the symbol into the chart again its fixed.
