Time interval of MC and TS

Hi Guys,
Here is my market, rb 1805 (reinforced steel bar, a heavy traded future contract in China, daily volume more than 4 million). It has a strange trading session, that is, 1st begins at 21:00-23:00, then 9:00-10:15, then 10:30-11:30, then 13:30-15:00. See the pic.

That is 345 minutes. It can be scaled by 3X5X23. If I use a 30 min bar chart, or 1 hour, 2 hour, the last bar of the 21:00-23:00 session has insufficient time and volume and price! So I figured out to use 5 ,15, 23 ,69 min bars. If I use 23 min bar, I should have 15 bars for a "session day", see pic

In Tradestation, this works perfect.

While in Multicharts, problem comes.

So those last bar in any intraday session, just end at the end of the session,has insufficient time!

How can I fix this?

Thanks

jiaqiangmit,

I am not sure if I understand you correctly, but Multicharts will break time based bars at a session change.
You could try to customize your session settings to only have one session in MC and see if this gives you the desired result.

This contract's one-day session is totally 345 minutes, broken into 4 intraday-sessions. If I use 23 min interval bar chart, there should be 15 bars for a one-day session, which is exactly the same in Tradestation. However, in Multicharts, I got 17 bars, and in every intraday-session, the last bar ends with the session end, so the last bar is insufficient in time.

So how can I configurate the Multicharts to work the same as Tradestation, that is, not to end a bar when the intraday session ends.

the pic, tradestation's 23 min bar charts, the "right" one, with 15 bars each "day".

jiaqiangmit,

as far as I am aware you can't change that MC behavior, but I'd suggest to contact their support directly as there might be solutions I am unaware of.
Please keep us updated here, as it might help others.

Thank you. Till now I found both MC and TS have their own edge, so I use them the same time.

I feel the same way and that's also why I think there is no "the best platform". It all depends on the task that you want to do with a specific platform.
