hi - just to confirm a couple of things.

1. Using sc.Bid / sc.Ask returns the bid/ask prices as I see them in the "current quote" window - right?
2. When running replay with historical data, the bid/ask from above is showing/returning values of the last traded price (the last tick). The historical data using SC FXCM doesn't have quotes in it - right?

1. Yes.

2. During a replay the Bid and Ask are calculated from the last trade price using a certain algorithm. They will always will be 1 tick apart.

The historical data does not contain the actual bid and ask prices but we are going to be adding this capability soon.

Do you expect this in the next couple of months?

Yes. As long as we do not get busy with something else unexpectedly. Lately other high-priority items have been getting in our way preventing us from completing certain tasks.

Hi - Colin here from Project X etc.
My client has asked to use Bid/Ask on our study, but without being able to backtest I advised him to wait.
Any further thoughts on when this option may be available to us?

We cannot help with custom studies because we are not familiar with them.

And we do not know exactly what is meant by "use bid/ask on our study".

So we really are not sure what is being asked here .
