Hello all.

Is it theoretically possible to get bad or no data at a givent moment at the selected resolution, and how does the QC platform handle these? 

An example, if my order entry/exit is based on a certain price level, and then an empty bar arrives, would the tradebar fields come in as zeros or something else? Would that be the time to use "fill forward"?

Is there a status indicator of the tradebar that would show OK, READY or similar? If not, what would be a good way to protect agains submitting orders in the event of bad or missing data?

If consolidated bars are used, for example 10 minute bars, and during the consolidation period a few bad ticks arrived, would the consolidated 10 minute bar be constructed using the available data and would that bar be pumped in as normal?
