Does Historical Testing with TickCount Require Gomi Recorder?
I want to create an OBV calculation that uses TickCount instead of Volume when Indy is applied to Volume Bar Chart.
Using logic like
But this seems to only work in Real-time. I want to use this for Backtesting. Basically TickCount Reports the same value for every Historical Bar.
So, I would like to know if this is something that would work correctly if applied to data files created with the Gomi Recorder? With the Gomi Recorded files does Bars.TickCount work correctly then? If not, are there special functions to call?
I'd like to know solutions/suggestions to this.
The lack of tick support makes my development process extremely difficult to debug, let along backtest.
I did some digging into Gomi but it seems majority of the discussions are on how to record data and using the enclosed indicators (ladder, cumulative delta, etc) instead of using its tick rendering engine as a replay/backtest framework.
