I looked through some of the VB/CD posts here but can't tell if the studies are only real-time vs able to pull up historical VB? I currently use Marketdelta and have paintbars built based on common reversal candlesticks with delta divergences, and looking at the bar-by-bar POC, and I am wondering if such indicators could actually be built in MC (to allow for backtesting)? When I first looked into this with EL a few years ago I thought you could only create VB bars real-time vs as far back as your tick data went?
To simplify the question. Has anyone been able to successfully match the VB/CD plots of Marketdelta, in Multicharts (assuming the same datafeed)? Thanks in advance!
MultiCharts doesn't support CD at this point. It is due to be added in MC7 beta which should be released shortly.

Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

Ok, that's what I heard from Jeff as well. So pardon a naive question but does that mean that bar-by-bar delta is also currently not possible? I keep seeing examples around where people show what looks like traditional delta, but my understanding was always that most software databases simply aren't structured to store the data appropriately to pull up historical delta (not cumulative)?
