You can only trade from Data1.
That's why you always put the fastest fractal on data1.

Re: Buy this bar at open

The strategy calculation is done at the end of a bar (EOB).
How soon do you want to trade AFTER the opening of the market?

Bear in mind, your vision might be trading on a daily bar, but in practice, you are actually trading intraday.
Therefore your analysis must include an intraday chart.

Re: Data downloaded but request backfilling again

I downloaded 1 min chart data and saved, when I open a new workspace and use 1 min chart with same symbol in the new workspace, why the system needs backfilling data again?

What do you mean by "I downloaded 1 min chart data and saved,"?

What steps did you do?

Re: Data loading speed - minutes data [SOLVED]

You see, TS, IB and OANDA are brokers; they are not real data providers. The quotes they provided are for order purposes.

If you need to load a lot of data in a hurry,
there is only one way to do it -- subscribe to a real data provider.
