Strategy based on tick data

Postby jankowski marek » 07 Dec 2007

After purchase of MC, I was negatively surprised by MC that MC is able to load only few days of tick data.

My strategy is working based of tick data and I have historical ticks database for the past 5 years.

Is it possible to load all data or load data on "demand" or allow testing strategy against all historical data?

Hi Marek,
look at "Format Symbols" after right click in the chart.

Regards
Robert

I did look in Format Symbol dialog and my configuration is: 1 tick data from Jan 1, 2007 to Oct 31, 2007. On chart I can see only last 8 days starting from Oct 22, 2007.

Any response from TSSupport?

marek,

are those 5 years already inside MC or do you request them by your provider (if so, who is the data provider?)?
Normally this shouldn't be a problem. I for example regularly chart month of 1 tick charts and it's working like a charm. However there is a limit of 1000000 bars, which can be changed in the registry. What is the bar number of the last bar on your chart?

Best regards,
ABC

I did import ES data from ASCII file. Last bar no. is 1028771. Where in registry I can change max bars number?
