Technical Studies Reference
Time and Sales Bid & Ask
The Time and Sales Bid & Ask studies display the individual best Bid and Ask prices that have been received from the data feed for the symbol.
This data comes from the Bid and Ask Records data in the Time and Sales data for the symbol of the chart. There is one record for each Bid and Ask price update.
There is a direct column to column correspondence between these studies which display the Bid and Ask prices and the Time and Sales Bid Size and Time and Sales Ask Size studies.
What this means is that at any column in the chart, the values you see for the Bid and Ask prices will correspond to the sizes you see from the Time and Sales Bid Size and Time and Sales Ask Size studies.
This study has a dependency on the Time and Sales data. To adjust the number of stored Time and Sales records, refer to Number of Stored Time and Sales Records.
This study is now supported during a chart replay in version 2148 and higher. In this case, there are no separate Bid and Ask Records. The study will display the Bid and Ask prices at the time of each trade.
At each chart column, the values of the Time and Sales studies do not correspond timewise to the individual chart bars. Instead they just represent the most recent Time and Sales data received from the data feed. With the rightmost value being the most recent and the leftmost value being the oldest available value.
