To get the continuous data of the custom future and be able to use barmagnifier I have to export this to ascii. With the help of a script I export the values in QM. This is a returning ritual, to keep the selfmade symbol up to date.
I use this for example:
The reserved words "uptick", "downtick", "ticks" gives different output with the setting on the charts format "build Volume on trade volume or tick count".
Code: Select all
Print(File(filename_fut), datetimetostring(datetime),",",Open,",",High,",",Low,",",Close,",",Upticks,",",Downticks,",",(upticks + downticks));
With the setting on build volume on trade it gives this:
- upticks = upvolume
- downticks = downvolume
- Ticks = totalvolume
With the setting on build volume on tick it gives this:
- upticks = upticks
- downticks = downticks
- Ticks = total ticks
I would like to export all the data that is in QM to ascii.
Open,High,Low,Close,Upvolume, Downvolume, Upticks,Downticks,Total volume, Total Ticks etc.
Is there a way to export the data in one go, without a lot of editing work in excel. For example with reserved words for every datafield in QM and not the same reserved words with double functions.
Or even better, are there any plans of changing the limitation of using barmagnifier with custom futures. This will save many users a lot of work exporting and importing data and prevents unwanted mistakes with data.
