INSERT / SYMBOL / SETTINGS / compression = contracts
Yes. I see that you have to first create a chart, and then switch it over. luckily for me, it creates the subsequent charts defaulted to the volume bar chart.

There should be a way to create the volume bar chart from the get go. Oh well.

Re: Pats System Data

Anyone using Pats for their European and U.S. futures data with MC?

What is the quality like? Does it go down?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks
I am also curious to know the answer to this as well. Please advise.

It will take 1-2 months approximately.
Okay. If you can beat SC to this, you may be in luck. I've already got the permanent license, but I'll start using the software more often :)

Okay. I see. But first, I had to set one symbol up manually in QuoteWindow. Hopefully not ALL the symbols. Just one. That wouldn't be good.
