Tic Chart Historical/real time data

Postby Emmanuel » 07 Aug 2011

Hi

I am using MC7

If I open 7200 tics char with EUR A0-FX bid and ask and trade on the chart,

Why the historical part of the chart don't look like the new real time part of the chart ?

The space between tic are not the same when the new real time data arrive.

Emmanuel,

When you have multiple subcharts, bars on every subcharts are synchronized in time. Every time when the new tick comes the last bar of the corresponding data series moves forward on the time scale which results in visual stretching of the time scale. This is not the case with historical data as all bars are sent complete and are not formed in real-time.
