"Previously I was using *******. IQFeed is WAY more economical, and for my charting needs is just as good, if not better." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"Everything is working great with the API. I love it." - Comment from Calvin
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob

Hi Curtis,
My email is on the fritz for some reason, did you get my chart and what is that string of ------ for? I got a whole series of them this morning for C.XIU, I would like to eliminate them if possible. Thanks for your help as always.

Kindest regards,

Tim

Hello Tim, yes i did get your email from last night I was getting ready to respond to it when I say your post come through. This is the same issue as you had with the other Canadian stocks you were looking at. Specifically, my post from the link to the other post.

"Hello Tim, depending on what type of Volume chart you are looking at yes it will do this. what happens is if a really large trade goes through that is higher than what you are looking at then the chart will basically flat line at the same price until it finishes that trade. so if you are looking at a 50 volume chart and a 1000 volume comes through at a price of 3.50 it will stay at 3.50 until it has plotted all of that trade, another way to look at it is every 50 points of volume it will create a bar then it will make a new bar for the same data for 50 points and so on and so on until that 1000 volume has been plotted. This will also happen on range charts as well if you look at them."

Hi Curtis,
Thank you, I just wanted to make sure of the data. The volume charts I use are quite large V117649 and V823543 so it usually doesn't come up. It seems as though these ----- come up at either the start or end of day. Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Tim

Hello Tim, from looking at the Time & Sales for this Symbol there was some really large trades that came through last night before the close which caused this to happen. I have added a snapshot of those last two trades for you to see.

Thank you Curtis, I appreciate you looking into this for me. I know we have spoken about this before but is there any way to automatically force a backfill when I bring up a chart? I have to do this manually because the Ergodic indicators I use like as much history as possible...lol. It makes a difference in how they react as well as the chart they produce. Thank you as always for your help.

Best regards,

Tim
