I find that these bars take a really long time to load, my cpu usage spikes and computer fan kicks into high gear while they are loading, and sometimes locks up NT until the chart loads. That process very seems CPU intensive.


I know that there are some chart types out there that do take a long time to load.

I have been using RenkoHybrid and ChannelTrend chart types for 2 years and have not noticed this issue.

Is this occuring with indicators already added to the chart? If you add a new chart or update a chart without indicators are the cpu usage values similar? How much historical data do you normally load.

Also, if you use even number tick bar size settings, it will reduce the cpu time needed by reducing the number of fractional calculations needed to calculate bar construction on the chart. I have updated the web site to reflect these preferred settings.
