Hi,
Is there a sc function available to check if the current bar / price tick is historic or real time?

Regards

The current bar can consist of historical and/or real-time data. And there is not any way to programmatically determine this.

Hi,
Thanks for your response.

In my strategy there is a requirement to open an entry at the first 'real time' tick when the strategy is attached to a chart ( during market hrs ). Any suggestion for detecting the 'real time' tick and opening the order?

Regards

Not sure we understand the details of this. There is this ACSIL member which may help:

Hi,
a) I have a strategy wherein I want to open a trade as soon as I open the chartbook ( with the strategy set up in studies tab ).
In this scenario the flag sc.ChartIsDownloadingHistoricalData(sc.ChartNumber) works fine, and returns false when the download of historical data is complete.
b) However if I set the flag to open the chartbook whenever SierraCharts is booted up, the above mentioned scenario fails, with thee trade being opened as soon as connection to data feed is opened and before historical data is downloaded. This is resulting in messed up trades.
See enclosed screenshot of the message log.

Please suggest a workaround / fix for this issue.

Regards

Vivek

You can check the data feed connection status with this ACSIL member variable:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/doc_ACSIL_Members_Variables_And_Arrays.html#scServerConnectionState

However, still there is going to be the time when the connection to the data feed completes and before the chart downloads historical data. We have to think about a solution to this.

We are adding this new ACSIL variable:
sc.IntradayChartRecordingState


It is documented here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/doc_ACSIL_Members_Variables_And_Arrays.html

It will be out in the next release.
