ASCII Data Series

Postby jrgmak » 10 Jul 2016

Created a chart by importing ASCII data into Multicharts. Problem is the chart can only be viewed under offline mode and the chart is blank ("No Data") under real-time mode. Tried Ctrl-R but still nothing happens. Is there a way to see the chart under real-time mode? Thanks!

Who is your broker/dataprovider?

What is the symbol?
How did you set up the symbol?

Got real-time data from IB and stored the data as ".txt" file, then import the file into Multicharts as ASCII data. Need to find a way to view that chart under real-time mode. Any idea?

Created my own symbol "Trading Data 5M" in QuoteManager, and then import the ASCII data.

Is this symbol created under IB?

Please post screenshot of the symbol setting.

Please create your dummy symbol under the broker "Free Quotes".
