Show change in tick data only

Postby tuaty2514 » 30 Sep 2015

Hello, I am new to multicharts and I am now working on tick data. I want to show the change in tick data only in the chart, i.e. if the next tick has the same value with the last tick, that the next tick would be omitted. I wonder how to do by formatting the chart or using powerlanguage.
Thank you very much.

Example:
3/24/2015 10:55:34 AM TRADE 24395 1
3/24/2015 10:55:34 AM TRADE 24395 1
3/24/2015 10:55:34 AM TRADE 24396 2
3/24/2015 10:55:34 AM TRADE 24397 1
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24395 2
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24395 1
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24395 1
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24394 1
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24394 1
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24393 1

Result:
3/24/2015 10:55:34 AM TRADE 24395 1
3/24/2015 10:55:34 AM TRADE 24396 2
3/24/2015 10:55:34 AM TRADE 24397 1
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24395 2
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24394 1
3/24/2015 10:55:35 AM TRADE 24393 1

Can you draw a picture to show what you mean?

Maybe you are thinking of a POINT chart?

Yes, I think it is called point chart or range chart in Multicharts.

However, the indicator(in red/blue line) would react upon the value in green dotted line in which it is just the extrapolation of the solid line. That's not I want.

I want something like the chart in the attachment.

Thank you very much for your help, TJ.

Sorry... I don't understand what you want to do.
Maybe others can chime in.

I hope this feature can be added too.
The "change tick" chart is similar to the "change chart" Multicharts has. But Multicharts "1 Change" chart actually has two changes (one for open price, another for close price). I hope Multicharts can change the current "1 Change" chart to "2 Change" and the real "1 Change" chart should be real one change only (open price equal to previous close price, one changed price for close price).

Unfortunately there is no such resolution at the moment.
You may want to submit a feature request to the Project Management of our web site so other users can vote for it: https://www.multicharts.com/pm/
Alternatively you can filter the data in the code and output only the required values on the chart.
