Playback : "Skip identical ticks" do not turn off

Postby chi jeongki » 22 Aug 2017

For 10 tick chart, if "Skip identical ticks" is turned off, and "Update on every tick" is turned on, then counting calls to CalcBar() for each bar should be 10.
But the result was less than 10, ticks with same price was skipped, it is what "Skip identical ticks" means.
I checked it by adding same symbol's 1 tick chart, and comparing a few 10 tick bar with its component 1 tick bars.
It was easy to notice that it is skipping same price ticks.

Even if I turn "Skip identical ticks" off, it does not turn off.
Then, indicators calulating on number of ticks or volume change will not work correctly.

Need to file a bug report?

Hello chi jeongki,

You need to "Jump to Bar", then disable "Skip ticks with identical price" in Format->Data Playback.

"Format->Data Playback->Skip ticks with identical price" has no description in wiki.
It must be a property to control which ticks to provide to indicators and signals.

Indicators have another means to skip, thus it is redundant with indicator.
Signals do not have means to skip, thus it is a new control feature to signals, I think.

Anyway, thanks for informing this.
