Does MultiCharts have Last bar lag time like Metastock?

Hello Bulli,

I doubt we have such feature, but to tell the truth i am not aware how exactly it works. Please describe the logic of this.

Thank you for the quick reply.

Sure, let us say the market closes at 17:00 normal hours.

At the end of the market we have "close auction" which can extend anywhere from five minutes to 10, 15 minutes, etc.

The market will then send the tick of the close with its time which is not 17:00, it will be 17:05 or 17:10 etc.!

In Metastock we simply tell it to treat anything that comes up to 30 min (adjustable) of market close to go into the last bar.

Otherwise you end up of having daily close <> intraday close.

I see now. Thank you for explanation. Unfortunately MC doesn't have anything like that. You can only configure the session end time, anything beyond session end will not be shown on chart.
Please leave us such feature request.
