Importing data from a file

#1 Postby sqaguru » Tue May 17, 2016 7:28 pm

Two questions:
1. Can FT import tick data from a file? It seems not, since it appears to expect only minute format data?

2. When I try to import data from a file of this format: EURUSD,20160509,00:00:00,1.13857,1.13868,1.13833,1.1386,136.409999966621, FT hangs. Why? What is the proper format for file data to be imported into FT?

Thanks

Hello,

Our program hangs because the volume value should be integer (the whole number).
Please try this format:
EURUSD,20160509,00:00:00,1.13857,1.13868,1.13833,1.1386,136

This should help.

Unfortunately the data I have comes in floating point format. Is there an automated way to convert it to whole number, so I can use it in FT?

Also, how about my second question. Can FT import tick data from a file? The Data center dialog has fields for bar data only. Anyway around this? Thanks

Hello,

Can you please send an example of data that you are trying to import?

Thank you.
