RTH and 24 hours data for the same symbol

Postby johnyx2 » 07 Nov 2008

Hello there,

Using Multicharts 4 with IB feed

I would like to have 2 charts:
1 - YM ECBOT 24hours
2 - YM ECBOT RTH

I tried to create these 2 symbols in Quotemanager with different session settings, but it would not let me create another symbol with the same name, category and feed.

Any way to achieve this?

Thanks

you don't need 2 symbols.
MC collects all data from your data feed. Session time is only a function of display.



just create a chart as usual.

you can Format the Symbol at the chart level to display in 24hr session, or the RTH session.

p.s. you define the RTH session time in the QuoteManager>Symbol>Edit Symbol>Sessions

When you plot the data in MC and select the "24 Hour" setting in the drop down list under settings, MC ignore the session settings in QM and plot all available data. When you select session "Regular", MC plot the data as per the session set in QM.

So, all you have to do is set the session settings in QM for RTH and then plot the 24 hour chart with "24 Hour" session selected and the RTH chart with "Regular" session selected.
