API Support » Get Balance Feb 07, 2014 @ 03:09 PM (Total replies: 3)

Yes but the advanced example doesn't work. The balance is shown to be blank until the account is changed.

What is the difference in Allocationblock and Account?

API Support » Get Balance Feb 06, 2014 @ 05:27 PM (Total replies: 3)

I've reviewed advanced example. I notice that we don't get the account balance until we change the account.

How do we trigger those events at the form load so that balances show correctly?

It looks like we can use Globals.CurrentAccountOrAB.

I.e equivalent to request balance

Market Data » Empty bars on historical end request Feb 06, 2014 @ 12:10 PM (Total replies: 2)

Thanks. Yes, that's what I assumed but I thought there might be some other flag so that I didn't have to maintain the state of requests in my program.

Market Data » OnPriceTick vs OnTicksReceived Feb 06, 2014 @ 12:09 PM (Total replies: 1)

Are these basically the same ? If I subscribe to Ticks and want history, I'll use OnTicksReceived but if I just want real-time then I use OnPriceTick?

In addition, am I ensured not to lose ticks with both of these methods?

Market Data » Empty bars on historical end request Feb 06, 2014 @ 11:44 AM (Total replies: 2)

What is the purpose of this "empty request"? Is this because a single historical request can trigger multiple calls/event fires?

Are there any flags within the subscription type itself that tells us the historical request is complete -- say for subscriptions where we want to know when the history is complete and we are receiving real-time data?

Market Data » Calculating bid/ask volume data and OnPriceTick Feb 05, 2014 @ 05:08 PM (Total replies: 2)

Right and that is my second part of question, we have a need to track those quote changes but there is no "flag" that tells us whats changed -- so how do we know?

We'd expect a flag that to raise to let us know okay ASK changed, or BID changes or TRADE Changed.

My question is what sort of logic can we use to "know" that say we have a new trade?

Market Data » Calculating bid/ask volume data and OnPriceTick Feb 05, 2014 @ 02:43 PM (Total replies: 2)

I'd like to classify the volume if it occurs on the bid or the ask. Is the bid/ask data that arrives in PriceChanged event the bid/ask at the time the volume was executed or the bid/ask at the present?

If it is the "present" bid/ask, is there a more accurate way for us to get this data such as using OnPriceTick? And that leads me to another question, OnPriceTick doesn't have a fields flag for changed fields. As such, how do we know if a field value has changed? How do we know if it is a new trade with new volume or just a quote change?

Is there a simulated datafeed that I can use for testing over the weekend?
