I'm trying to figure out why delta is missing some of the bars. I've deleted/downloaded data twice and it's still the same. How do I get the delta to show for all bars? What am I missing?

Nothing you can do at the moment. You just have to wait until the market closes. This is explained here:

Thanks that helps! I have a few more questions about this.

Why the gap in data for the delta bars? according to the link you posted if I do a delete/download data during market hours I should only have 8 days worth of tick data. Given that shouldn't the chart only show the last 8 days of delta bars?

When I do a delete and download data outside of regular market hours Sierra automatically downloads 120 days of tick data and the rest is in 1min, correct? Is there a setting in Sierra for the number of days it downloads tick data? IE, say I just want the last 20 days to be tick data and the rest to be 1min, is that possible or am I stuck with the full 120 days of tick data?

If I have a volume profile for longer than 120 days how does Sierra calculate the 1min data for the profile?

Thanks for your help and fast responses!

There is more data in the chart from a previous download that was done outside of market hours.

With what you describe, you cannot limit the amount of tick data downloaded. If 120 days needs to be downloaded, then 120 days will be downloaded.

We cannot comment further on either of the above.
