NT7 Delay before new bar draws

I noticed this morning that NT7 has a delay of about 10 seconds between when the bar timer reads 00:00:00 and when the new bar draws. Does anyone know what might cause that and if there is a fix?

You are right, i have noticed exactly this

I have been watching 5 min and 15 min charts and on the countdown to 00:00:00 there is 100% a 5-10 second delay before the next bar is printed. Itís Very strange, i was watching my DOM price move then the new bar print

God knows why, but Iím sure there is some genius somewhere on here that will inform us

Yes...

if it is just a visual thing, while that still sucks, I could get over it. But there are times where orders are not laid out and the 10 second data gap IS trading blind during that time.

Off topic but I’m curious WLDMAN

When you connect to your data feed and brokers on start up

Do you ever connect and nothing happen, it has a green connected status but there is no live data?

DOM is blank and no orders through T&S ect......

I get this most mornings, i have to disconnect and re-connect and everything is fine

A bit annoying though!

Im with AMP Futures using there CQG feed, don’t know if that would make a difference

I have also tried to do a fresh install of ninja...Twice to fix the issue but didnt work

I really should contact Ninja but i just been riding the issue out as its annoying but not life threating:-D

Is this across you whole platform?

Even though this exact same problem seems to occur on mine........my:

Volume/Tick charts still work fine

DOM is correct real time

T&S still prints correct ect

So not too much of an issue for me as i only use the 5 -15 min to look for buying and selling pressure from the candlestick wicks and market structure

It would be nice to get this problem rectified though 100000%

Now it has caught my eye its going to bug the crap out of me i suppose

Start up

does not give me any issues of which I am aware. I do not use DOM, but the inside market as displayed on chart trader does NOT update during that "delay". Note that the delay does not happen all the time...but when I'm staring at it and it does occur confidence in the platforms are undermined. DB

Thanks Brett

I forgot about that clock sync issue as well. I will try to sync my computer clocks as well. That would explain why it happens sometimes and not at other times? Thanks for the response. DB

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


Re-reading this post, here is what I think might be happening.

- BarTimer works of PC clock
- Will count down on real-time
- A new bar will only print as a new tick comes in within the boundaries of the time period
- For example, if you have 5 min bars and the PC clock now shows 9:00 AM, the bar timer would show complete
- It is expected that a new bar will only form as the next tick comes in after 9 AM, which could be near immediate or seconds to minutes later depending on the market
