Data Playback, no more update between the 10 minutes tick.

Postby Emmanuel » 14 Jan 2012

Hi

I use the Data Playback with a 10 minutes charts:

As soon as I use a second dataseries ( for example : close of Data2 or Time of Data2),

I have no more update minute by minute in the Data playback


I have no more update between the 10 minutes tick.

How do I keep the update of the indicators between the 10 minutes tick using 2 dataseries ?

I did not think there was any update between 10 minute bars in data playback unless you have 1 minute bars or less which were being updated. The closing price of the bar is never moving. All that happens is the next bar appears fully completed (meaning open, high, low and close are already fully there). To prove this test barstatus <> 2. It will never be true and will always be 2 (meaning the last tick of the bar is all you get). Yeah, I had to create a GV to tell my code that replay mode was running so it would run correctly (and I had to change some of the code to compensate for it). So if you do have 1 minute bars the next 10 minute bar will not appear until the barStatus=2 point comes (which should be when the 10th 1 minute bar reaches its barstatus=2 point as well).

For this very reason, tick charts do not work in the current version of replay (as far as I know). I believe they want to eventually get a true replay where actual ticks replay but I think this would be a heck of a lot of reprogramming. On the other hand maybe they can trick MC into thinking it is a true trading day (not sure).

Hi Emmanuel,

What do you mean by saying "I have no more update between the 10 minutes tick"?

Do you mean that the chart is not being updated minute-by-minute during the data playback? What data playback resolution do you use? What data playback mode do you use? Please be more specific.

Hi Roman,


Thank you for your answer, I will be more precise :

I created a word document (attached):

page 2 : You will find a simple the indicator

page 3 : you will the capture of my screen , the indicator is working

page 4 : I change the indicator : I add a new data serie (close of data1)

page 5 : you will find the new behavior of the indicator, at the same time and date

The indicator become flat between two 10 minutes tic
The results are the same from one minute to the next between two 10minutes tic.

When we use a second data serie in a indicator, how can we keep having the indicator working
and giving updated results on every minute ???

Hi Emmanuel,

In this case it is necessary to disable the "Realtime-History Matching" feature.

To do that, please:
1. open the Format Indicator window.
2. click the Format button.
3. select the Properties tab.
4. in the Advanced section, uncheck the Realtime-History Matching checkbox.
5. click OK to save the settings.
