ESZ2 daily wrong

Postby Fabrice » 16 Nov 2012

After several attempts, I cannot find the way to make MC display correctly ESZ2 on a daily chart.
b_Pict1 is the correct chart (TWS).
b_Pict2 is the chart with MC.
I have highlighted the 11/14/12 candle.
In QM ESZ2 is configured with the default session times (see b_Pict3).
Regards.

Hello Fabrice,

Please go to QuoteManager -> Tools -> Data Sources -> Interactive Brokers -> Settings -> Is "regular trading hours" checked?

Hello Andrew,
Yes, "Regular Trading Hours" is checked (cf b_Pict4).

Please plot a the chart of the same symbol and of the same daily resolution in IB TWS. Then go to Chart Properties and make a screenshot of the whole tab "Chart Parameters". Please make sure all the fields and boxes are captured as on the screenshot below.

Checked Regular Trading Hours box in QuoteManager = unchecked Show data outside of regular trading hours box in IB TWS,
or vice versa:
Unchecked Regular Trading Hours box in QuoteManager = checked Show data outside of regular trading hours box in IB TWS.

Choose what daily bars you want and set it up both in MC and IB TWS respectively.

So is it possible to have
- a daily chart displaying ESZ2 with RTH
- another daily chart displaying ESZ2 with all trading hours

And, more generally, is it possible to display a daily chart of 1 symbol with only RTH, and another daily chart of another symbol (6EZ2 for example) with all trading hours ?

No, Fabrice. This check-box affects all daily-based charts for all symbols from Interactive Brokers in MultiCharts. Daily data is provided a solid OHLC bar by the data vendor. Session settings do not influence daily-base resolution. IB allows to request 2 types of daily bars: RTH daily bars and RTH+outside RTH daily bars.

Have checked on 8.5 beta 1. MC chart = TWS when unchecking Regular Trading Hours in the settings of the data source. It is wise to have added "for daily-based data only" because this clearly shows that daily data download does not use at all the session settings. This was not obvious.
