Bar building

Postby wegi » 17 Jul 2010

Hi,


TS provides two options for bar building:
- session hours
- natural hours

Is this possible in MC?

This is very important. The session for FX on Interactive Brokers starts at sunday 17:15. If i open an 30min chart, the bar goes from 17:15 - 17:45, 17:45 -18:15.
this is absolutly wrong for fx! i need regular hours.
so my workaround is to start the session at 17:00 (my timezone!).
But this still affects the 2h bar, which should start at 16:00 and not at 17:00, even that there is no data from 16:00 - 17:15.

i can´t imagine that i am the only one with this problem.
i gues, everyone who trades forex against IB should have the problem with intraday Bars.

Dear wegi,

We plan to implement the session hours and natural hours options in the future.

you can use 60 minutes resolution to build session hour bars.
