A quick Question about 5.5

Postby Nick » 09 Jul 2009

I seem to remember that an option to build bars tick by tick was planned (when loading and processing historical data). Did I imagine that or is it still planned?

Cheers.

Nick,
It is not clear what you mean. Could you specify?

Hi Andrew its the option to load a chart with bars (lets say 5 minute for example) but have them built tick by tick even for historical data. This allows all sorts of clever stuff with indicators and strategies.

Edit: a bit like bar magnifier but for regular studies and strategies.

Nick,
Our Bar Magnifier technology works for any strategies - built-in or custom. It will not work for indicators since it is not supposed to work.
If you want to have an option what type of data should be considered as elementary data then my answer is no.
