Update every tick

Postby Guest » 08 May 2006

hi
If i check update every tick on my study, understandably, it will calculate when every tick comes in.

But if i leave it uncheck, when will the indicator be calculated ?
Say i run the indicator on a 1 minute chart and uncheck update every tick.
Can i assume,
the indicator will run at the close of the current minute ?
or
the start of the next minute for the previous minute ?
If it is the later , then what if the next minute there is no data ?

thanks appreciate any responses.

When "Update on every tick" is not marked, the indicator is updated on every bar, whatever the bar's resolution is.

Ask i have posted earlier... i know when "Update on every tick" is not marked, the indicator is updated on every bar.

My question is at which point in time ?
At the close of the bar ?
or
at the start of a new bar for the previous bar ?
If its the later, what if in there is no data coming in for the next time interval ?

thanks

Guest,

if you uncheck Update every tick, the study is calculated at the end of the bar. You can notice that your study is delayed one bar i.e. it's not plotted at the current bar.

Hope that helps,

Chris
