Notes

  • OpenInt is supported for time-based charts with resolutions of 1 day or more.
  • Please note that most data feeds provide only a limited history of volume and tick data; storing real-time feed data will ensure the availability of historical volume and tick data.
  • The range of returned values is limited by the MaxBarsBack setting.
