Equities After Hours Charting

Postby flipflopper » 13 Oct 2008

When charting equities after hours with esignal data everything looks great once the chart is opened. Then when new real time data comes in the Multichart chart will just continue to re-print the closing print.

I have attached a comparison between Esignal and Multicharts that show the issue. I opened this chart at about 16:40... you will see before 16:40 they are identical... after 16:40 Multicharts doesn't update real time data... it just repeats the closing price.

I will also tell you how to fix this.

Instead of pulling in esignal price data using the "Last Trade Price" field. Please use the "Last/Extended Hours Last"

That will give Multicharts the ability to chart equities in real time after hours with esignal data!!!

See attached.
