300-tick Bars (Candles) Consolidator

Can someone please share a sample code for creating 300-tick bars (candles) from tick data.
Note: TickConsolidator

Many thanks!

Hey Peter, check out some of the other consolidator examples, but in short this should work to create the consolidator:var consolidator = new TickConsolidator(300);All the other code for using the bars and handling the new data events is the same between all of the consolidators. Of an important note is that the ticks can and will span day and/or weekend gaps!

Here's a link to the consolidator example algorithm in github.
Here's another link (another, another, another) to various forum posts about consolidators that may help.

Hi Michael, thx for your quick response. There is however an incorrect return. I receive a 4-tick Bar instead of a 2-tick Bar.

var tConsolidator = new TickConsolidator(2);
