RT IQFeed S&P500 futures

Postby syswizard » 09 Nov 2018

In real time the data Window shows volume different than Status Line.
Likely a multithreading issue.
The Close seems to track however.
Check it out.
Symbol @ES#C
Strangely, the time on the data window matches the previous day close, but does NOT match the current real time.

Hello syswizard,

The values are matching on our end.
You need to make sure you have non-delayed realtime data for your account.
Status line shows the Total Volume for the current session. This means you need to plot a daily chart and check the current realtime bar.
If there is no realtime bar then you need to check your sessions.

Sorry, but I disagree. The Chart Hint and Data Window sometimes does NOT have a volume that matches the status line...sometimes it does.
It appears to lag a bit.
However the close is a perfect match.
This is definitely real time data....and I am plotting a daily chart

syswizard,

Chart and status line are separate data streams that are updating asynchronously.
If you have a lot of charts/drawings/running autotrading/optimization/playback at the same time - small update lag is possible.
