Arrow time with no matching bar.

Postby bowlesj3 » 23 Feb 2010

I had an interesting thing happen yesterday that I have never seen before and which TSS might want to know about.

I dropped an arrow on the chart and the study that detects it submitted the data and time to the binary search routine. It came back with a no find. I checked the max bars back setting for the study and it was 1000 (easily large enough). So I looked at the data and time submitted to the search routine as provided by the arw_gettime_s and Arw_getdate commands. It turned out that the binary search was correct. There was a bar missing in the chart and the arrow had submitted the missing bar's date and time to the binary search routine. I would thnk that this is an error. The arrow commands should only be obtaining the date and time of visible bars on the chart.
