Average of a Bar

Postby TopGuy » 21 Nov 2012

I looked at the code of the moving average indicator and it is using Bar.Close to calculate the average.

There is no Bar.Average or Bar.Data properties (where the data is a collection of the individual ticks, so I could calculate the average myself).

Is there any way to calculate the average of a bar?

In general there is no tick detalization for bars with minute or higher resolution.

Thanks Dru, I am on tick charts (100 tick per bar).

The logic says, if MC.NET had a way of constructing the bar and showing me the tick movements as they appear, then I should have access to this data through some API, even in non-aggregated format.

There are 2 ways:
1) add the same instrument to the chart but with 1 tick resolution (or the one you need) and access ticks via BarsOfData
2) use IDataLoader
