I understand, but the thing is I can only access to that time through backtesting because it's a demo account. Anyway I'll try If there's a time frame I can access with the current contract data.

Can you give some clue on how to use non-time bars. I've read something but I don't get anything clear.

thanks agains

In a nutshell,

Time-based bars
Print a fixed amount of bars every x period. E.g. there's always 12 5-mins bars in 1 hour period.

Non-time-based bars
Print a variable amount of bars in a given period. The variable amount depends on the nature of the bar.

There's probably some documentation on the Wiki on FIO but for expediency you can check this for reference!Documents/constantvolumebarcvb1.htm!Documents/renkorenko.htm!Documents/rangebarrb.htm
