Treasury Bond Futures ASCII Mapping

Postby TraderD » 17 Dec 2018

I'm having a little problem plotting T-bond futures data correctly using ASCII mapping. So, for example, if my ascii file has a 12/14/18 Close listed as 142.23, I want it to plot as 142 23/32 or 142 ^23, depending on how MultiCharts handles the 32nds. But I'm not getting that. I tried all kinds of possible settings for Price Scale and Min Movement in the QuoteManager, but nothing seems to work.

If I select 1/32 and 10th of 32 for Price Scale and Min Movement of 1, I get 142 7.4/32 on the chart instead of 142 23/32.
If I select 1/32 and S of 32 and Min Move of 1 I get 142 7.5/32.

Any ideas?

P.S. I don't really care if the data in the chart plots as 23/32 or 0.71875, I just want the correct number of 32nds.

Hello, TraderD!

Your file should contain prices in the appropriate format. If you’d like to display prices in 1/32 format, then the prices in the file should be changing in 0.03125 increments.
