slowness downloading data

Postby arnie » 07 Oct 2017

Every weekend I run MC on my laptop to download all week's data.
I have 9 workspaces, each for a different symbol, where I have minute, tick and daily charts, to collect all data type for the entire week for the front and back months..

I do this for CQG and for Gain Capital.
While CQG download all data between 2 to 3 minutes, Gain Capital takes around 10 minutes.

Is this slowness coming from Gain Capital servers or could MC be responsible for part of it?
I might be wrong but it feels to me that MC.NET download Gain Capital way faster than MC.PLE.

If you guys want, I can send all the workspaces so you can test it on your side.

Hello Arnie,

Each data provider works in a special way due to the way his API and servers are programmed. That is expected that one vendor can supply data faster than the other one. The version of the platform you are running has nothing to do with it, they work with the data providers exactly the same way.
