Daily candlestick last bar problem

Postby wzero » 21 Oct 2014

Today's NQ future 1 Day hollow/candlestick chart last bar changed from a big up bar to a hammer bar after post market hours starts. See the attached screen shot, the last bar had a large up bar entity in regular hours but changed to like this after 15:30 exchange time.

Hello wzero,

Realtime daily bars for Interactive Brokers are not saved to the database.
After restart of the application historical bar that is stored on the IB servers is downloaded by MultiCharts and it can be different from the realtime bar.
For more information please see Collecting and Saving Data to MultiCharts Database.

In order to get overnight data for daily bars in QuoteManager go to Tools tab->Data sources ->IB->Settings->disable "Regular Trading Hours" option. Reload the chart using Ctrl+R after changing this setting.

Yes, I meant the realtime daily bar is not generated correctly as in the screen shot.
