Remaining ticks on a ticks chart

Postby arjfca » 03 Dec 2012

Hello

Using Ticks charts,

Is it possible to know how many ticks still need to be process before the end of a bar. I want to set an alarm when the bar is near completion

Hello arjfca,

I believe it is possible if you use barstatus keyword and set up a tick counter updating with every tick, so when a particular number of ticks is reached, then alert. Don't forget about this feature.

It can easily be done. I think it is within your programming capability.

Hello TJ

Agree about within my capability. I had not taught to use the barstatus as borders for calculation. I will work on that later.

Have a great day happy trading time

Martin :)
