Hi Chad

Thanks as always. I am having problem using symbol for canadian dollar 6c. I currently use OEC as my data provider with dtnma as backfill and historical data. The 6c is quoted as cad/USD everywhere whether its forex exchanges or what not with current quote being around 96.03. However when you setup DTNMA and use symbol usdcad.fxcm its quoted as USD/CAD and current quote is 104.13. Is there any way around this to get quotes as CADUSD rather than USDCAD because while trading thats what you are trading. And looking at volume profile in an inverted way doesnt really help-have to keep thinking that its the inverse of what its showing. And it messes up the charts too everytime I do a backfill cause the OEC feed is 6c and DTNMA/FXCM is USDCAD.

Try @CD#


I tried that and a new problem comes up. It works for a second and then when it gets a new tick update it just shows todays bar see the pictures below

Its OK here


One second later



These are the setting I currently have



Are there any definitions for Forex available ? Working with ES chart creates a whole set of other problems. If possible could you make a new video on Forex next when you get a chance, please ?

Try entering the DTNMA symbol just like this...

@CD# * 100

then do a full download again. That will multiple all the prices from DTNMA by 100. They are off by a factor of 100.

See: Investor/RT - AnswersÂ* (LinnSoft.com)
for more info.

And onto another problem that I have at almost every rollover on CL. I am aware of the inherent rollover by default in IRT to the next future month for CL and this time I used the rollover feature too.

I ve gone over this part already https://www.linnsoft.com/qa/a/253.htm

I get the data like it shows in the image below but the chart doesnt update. I have tried using prior month's symbol and same problem exists. The symbol is setup correctly in marketdelta I am getting the feed alright but chart wont update. I have tried updating, restarting, closing all windows etc and in 2-3 days it will go away by itself. CL rolls over every month so I lose 2-3 days of trading in CL or I trade off different charts altogether.




Edit: Like I said earlier, the problem is gone now. I didnt do anything. And it happens almost every CL rollover.

I see you offer a Apple OSX version. Does it offer all the features of the Windows version? Also is it possible to obtain: data feed, DOM, etc to day trade the ES on just Apple?

Thanks,
Chris Tina

Both versions are identical - all the latest OSX updates work quick and flawlessly - there is even a significant
better calculating now that uses much less CPU power for heavy working indicators.
This is one of the few chart packages with a lot of amazing stuff that really work on OSX directly.
