IQFeed - Huge Gaps Right Before Last Bar

Postby Jobauma » 06 Feb 2019

Hi.

This is something that is occurring almost all the time.

Why isn't MultiCharts loading a number of bars right before the last bar? :)

Is it IQFeed or is it MultiCharts that is the cause?

When reloading the chart there is always just one bar before the gap.

Is there a setting to solve the issue? :)

I've removed COMODO to be sure it wasn't the firewall.

It is for example with the symbol "AUDCAD.COMP".



Best regards,

I think I've found the problem. :)

I had 8000 bars back for 12 charts ( 1 symbol ).

Steps to reproduce the solution:
1 Reduce "8000" ( " Format Instruments... > Settings > Bars Back " ) on all charts to something like "377".
2 Save the workspace.
3 Go to " QuoteManager > Symbol > Right-click > Delete Data... " ( for the current symbol ).
4 Reopen the workspace.

It seems like there are random gaps right before the last bar ( with too many " Bars Back " ), and suddenly the random gap stops ( for unknown reason ). If the random gap is going on, there is only 1 bar after the gap. After the gap is done, bars come and stay ( but the gap is still there ).

I hope that this can be fixed. :)

I guess I'll have to be satisfied with 377 bars back ( without playback for now ). :)

I'm not sure what the problem actually is, but I think I found some clues.



Best regards,

Hi.

Reloading the chart ("Ctrl+R") was the solution, after all. But it doesn't work all the time. Suddenly it can work. :)

The gaps can be up to 2 weeks. :P

I'm going to try IQFeed Client 6.0.1.1 Beta, to see if the issue is completely gone.

Hello Johannes,

In MultiCharts please go to File->Preferences->Charting->Enable data sources merging.
Then go to your chart, go to Format->Instrument->Instrument tab, disable the "Merge data sources into a single chart" option if it is enabled.

Thanks, Henry.

I still have to to reload (ctrl+R), but it doesn't work all the time. I'll leave the setting on. :)

IQFeed Client 6.0.1.1 Beta didn't solve the issue.

I can live with the problem. :)
