ESignal Daily Bars in 7.4 Beta

Postby trader39 » 10 Dec 2011

Apparently a change was made to the treatment of Esignal daily bars in the 7.4 Beta version so that they would update more rapidly. Unfortunately the new code also seems to cause recent daily bars to be missed quite frequently when the same daily chart is reused over multiple days. For example, many of my daily charts have data for December 5,6,7 and 9 but not for December 8. This also happened occasionally with previous versions of Multicharts but with previous versions of Multicharts it could be rectified by reloading the chart. Currently, it can only be rectified by closing the chart, deleting all the daily data for the symbol in quote manager, and then reopening the chart, which is obviously unworkable. Do you have an ETA for fixing this bug?

Have you changed symbol settings?
What else have changed in the PC and software setup?
Can this problem be easily reproduced on MultiCharts 7.4 beta 2 ?

Please let me know what symbol you are using.
Attach screenshots of the following tabs:
Quote manager-> double click on the symbol->Settings and Sessions tabs.

No I have not changed any symbol settings or any other PC or software setup. The problem is not that easy to reproduce since you must collect data on a symbol for several days for it to appear. I have found reload may work to correct the problem after the day is over, but never intraday. Before version 7.4, reload would fill in missing daily bars at any time. The most ordinary settings and sessions were used.

Is INHX a stock? Was the symbol added manually or from the data source?
Please clarify the steps for reproducing the issue:
1) Add the symbol
2) Make a right click on it in the Quote manager->Fields to collect->Select Trade field for Daily resolution?
3) Enable "Collect data without plotting"
4) How long should it stay connected?
5) After the N days some daily bars would be missing?

INHX is a stock. I have not enabled collect daily data without plotting, however I have had the chart open most days. The missing day issue seems to occur most for Wednesdays and Thursdays...in other words one or the other of these days is often missing after a week of trading.

The attached chart illustrates the problem and the fact that it is an ongoing defect. This is for the stock symbol POT, which I first loaded a chart for yesterday, and has daily bars in the top panel and hourly bars in the lower panel. There is no daily bar for yesterday as you can see. It is not set to collect without plotting. Rather I loaded the chart yesterday during trading hours and then came back and loaded it today during trading hours. Reloading does not help at present, during trading hours, but it may help after today's close. Please give me an ETA for fixing this major bug.

I am experiencing something similar with the daily feed from IWBANK QUICKTRADE, when I download the daily data several recent bars are missing, for example I have lack of data from 1December to 8 December, or I do not have the last bar etc...I was wondering if the cause can be similar?

That is a different issue.
Please try to reload the chart using Ctrl+R.
In case you still have the issue-please contact IWBank directly.
