Range bars with tick intervals not point intervals

Postby pivot » 30 Dec 2009

It would be great if there was a way to have range bars on tick intervals ie on the ES to have a 1.5 range bar not having the system round it to a whole point ie 2pts.

Is there any way to achieve a 1.5 range bar in MC6?

Also it would be great to select between time or tick based range bar. TS has all this functionality.

Use 6 point setting to get 1.5 range bar on ES symbol, make sure you have correct symbol attributes in quote manager.

MC is far better then TS as it allows IOG calculation accross all types of charts.

thanks super

I will try that. I am making the transition to MC so its just a learning process for me to figure out the MC way but already think it rocks vs TS.

When setting the Chart Type,

in Range chart (also called Point chart),

1 Point in the range chart represents 1 Tick to your instrument.

Yes TJ thats were I misunderstood as 1 point for me is 1 pt not 1 tick... in ES speak would be 4 ticks... anyways all good now I understand the fine print.
