Hi

I only get one day of tick data from my rithmic data feed. I have 34 point resolution charts where the signals need a week of tick data to fire a signal.

I prefer to run charts with rithmic because I run into some problems when using cqg .

I can merge the cgq to provide the tick data, but then I have the cqg processes running which can trigger problems eventually.

Is there a way I can somehow save a week of cqg data for 1 instrument locally and then use it in a chart with only the rithmic feed providing current live feed ?

Or does this have to be done through data merge option ?

I wondered if that data could be imported the way you would import the data from ninja also ?

I hope my question is clear enough. Thank for any help.

sincerely,
Shane

Could I export the data through quote manager on the cqg symbol and then import the data back in through quote manager to use for backfilling rithmic chart ?

After merging the data in the chart, I closed down thinking the merged data would be saved and the backfill would be saved. So I restarted MC, and chose locally stored data setting on startup.
After unchecking merge data box on the chart, I put it back to rihmic . The chart reloaded to only one day of data .

That did not work

Shane,

I am not sure if I follow you 100%. Both CQG and Rithmic data should be stored locally in MC Quotemanager.

Let's say you have one symbol that only has one day of data you can add additional history by simply importing data to this symbol in QM. So what you have in mind should work fine if done correctly. I would probably clear the data for the range I am going to import first just to make sure that there are no duplicate entries.
