Postby bobhock » 05 Oct 2012

My futures charts (bonds, e-mini) are set for electronic sessions, but the charts do not show electronic hour prices.

suggest you set chart to 'exchange time' (not local time); using QuoteManager [Tools --> Session Templates] create a session template to match the time of the globex contract specifications; then use the custom session template for your 'bond' chart:

I see what you mean, and I see that it should work, but I deleted the instrument and started over, using what you suggest, and the result was no different.

I see what needs to be done. I have spent now about three hours trying to get it done, but no joy yet. I appreciate your time on it.

escamillo - thank you for your assistance. progress: over the weekend, no data because no market. this morning, overnight data is here.

i have MC set to download missing historical data, but the missing electronic session data still does not show, but it is not a problem if i continue to get it, going forward from here.
