Limit of 1M bars in a chart?

Postby jek » 28 Nov 2008

It appears that there is a 1 million limit on the total number of bars in a chart.
Is there any way to do a study that uses more bars than this?

It is quite understandable that a chart can't have unlimited number of bars.
But when doing some back-testing, it can be useful to have more than 1M.

Can the scanner be used to get more bars in some way?

Hi jek,

The maximum number of bars to be plotted on the chart can be set in the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\MultiCharts\Shaper\MaxBarCount
