Hi Trader,

I'd recommend installing the 4.0 beta 3. In beta 3 Close is still visible even when the bar spacing is <10.

Let me know in case you still see this problem in beta 3.

Hi Fanus,

This has been confirmed as a bug: PowerLanguage does not block out this syntax as an error and the gcc compiler compiles it as well.

We have issued a ticket order for this bug. However, it is regarded as a minor bug, so I am not sure what version it will be fixed in.

Hi irishkev,

What resolution were you plotting? Also, what server were you connected to when you were requesting that data? I checked minutes for EUR/USD on server 64 and it didn't look like anything was missing. Also, were you plotting the chart in the local or exchange time?
