Insider Bars – Save Calculated Data for Faster Startup

When using minute or second charts, the Insider Bars indicators have the option to save calculated data with the workspace. This reduces load times significantly once data has been loaded, since far less data must be read, sorted and processed.

For this option to work properly, the workspace must be saved each time you close the platform. If not, all the newly collected data is not saved and must be re-downloaded.

Insider Bars – Combine Ticks

When using Insider Bars raw data options, you can choose to group price points together. For instance, you might wish to group stock prices together into 10 cent or one dollar increments rather than one cent, to make the chart easier to view. Combining ticks is useful when volatility is high or when a market’s tick size is small.

The Combine Ticks option is only available when using raw data.
