Working with tick data

I am sure there is an example for this somewhere, but I am having trouble finding it: if I want to work with windows of tick data (say, the last 10 minutes worth, or whatever),, how do I actually do it? And is the format for the "window" a pandas dataframe, or something else? Any words of wisdom appreciated.

Hi Igor, please refer to this post to get the tick data

https://www.quantconnect.com/forum/discussion/4405/current-price-ondata-python/p1

The number of ticks in the last 10 minutes is not a fixed number while the rolling window is used to save a fixed number of the data point. Therefore, you can only save the last N-ticks in a rolling window instead of all ticks in a fixed time horizon. Rolling Window is not a dataframe. It's a list of data point. The type of the data is defined in the rolling window. You can save a list of Decimal, float numbers, or TradeBars, QuoteBars. Please see the documentation.

Thanks! I will look at the docs, now that I know where to look...
