Volume Bars: How to supress the empty bar at session End ?

Postby wodru » 17 Dec 2006

I noticed the following behaviour in Volume and Range Bar Charts:
The last visible bar ends a few seconds before the session end and an empty bar follows at exactly the session end.
This empty bar distorts all indicators, trend lines etc. How can i supress this empty bar ?

This empty bar does exist so far, but according to our tests, it doesn't influence the indicators at all. We are working on this and such empty bars will be removed in the future versions.

What about incomplete volume bars at the end of a session ? Is this going to be fixed as well. This will effect indicators.

Alex Kramer replied to this problem in a different thread:

There are 2 issues here:

1. Ideological - with your proposed approach it would not be possible to create two identical charts if the start date is different.

2. Technical - found out it was too complicated with our existing QuoteManager architecture; considering the underlying ideological issue we decided not to try further.

Alex's explanation was correct. Each session is independent and the last bar will almost always be incomplete.
