Here is a snapshot of the data format that I am trying to use. I built a TS app to export this data as a CSV in this format:
Symbol, YYYYMMDD, Time, Open, High, Low, Close, Volume
You can see that the bars are in central standard time, and the time stamp is for end-of-bar. So, 9:30am is the first bar of the day, and 3:00pm is the last bar of the day.
I've got all of the bars lining up except the last two bars of the day. No matter how I set the settings in the intraday section of the DB setup and the intraday setup in preferences, I cannot get these last two bars to come out correctly on my Ami charts. Are there any other intraday settings that I do not know about?
Here are snapshots of the last couple of bars, side-by-side with Tradestation. You can see the 1:30pm bars DO line up. But when I get to the 2:30pm bar, in Ami, it calls that the 3:00pm bar (and no others follow for the day), and completely skips over the 2:30pm bar. It seems to merge the 2:30pm bar with the 3:00pm bar into one bar (incorrect.)
Correct 1:30pm bar:
Incorrect 2:30pm bar:
Here are snapshots of the two places I have been messing with settings to no avail:
DB's intraday settings:
Can someone please tell me why I cannot get the last two bars to line up????
I am trying to mimic the time sequence in the first snapshot I sent above. IE:
9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:00pm (last bar of day)
