Data format of FT data

#1 Postby brucehvn » Sun Mar 30, 2008 9:40 pm

Is it possible to get the format of the FT tick data file so we can possibly write some converters for outside tick data (other than Qanda)?

Yes, it is very simple:

dword count

double DateTime0
doulbe price0

double DateTime1
double price1

....

double DateTimeN
double priceN

--------------

DateTime is in Delphi format:

The integral part of a Delphi TDateTime value is the number of days that have passed since 12/30/1899. The fractional part of the TDateTime value is fraction of a 24 hour day that has elapsed.

Following are some examples of TDateTime values and their corresponding dates and times:

0 12/30/1899 12:00 am
2.75 1/1/1900 6:00 pm
-1.25 12/29/1899 6:00 am
35065 1/1/1996 12:00 am
Hasta la vista
Mike

Is this information still correct as of ForexTester 2.9.3?
