IB - Merging data from 2 symbols

Postby Kaos » 08 Mar 2007

Hi All,

Symbol 1 trades on KSE from 10am to 4pm Local time
Symbol 2 trades on CBOT from 10pm to 6am Local time

Is it possible to merge data from 2 symbols into something called symbol 3
as they are not trading in the same timezone?

If not - any hints on a workaround?

Thanks
Paul

I think all you need is to superimpose the 2 symbols on the same chart space.
the database will still be separated, but the chart will appear continuous.

Thanks for the tip but it won't work.

The indicators will only reference data1 or data2 not the synthetic symbol

So I suppose what I'm after is ...
QuoteManager to create a synthetic symbol"C"
by using quotes from symbol"A" and symbol"B"
