X Time Candle Charts

I'd really like to see my charts in 15min or 30 min candles. Is this possible yet? I know daily is possibly by:

plotter.AddSeries(new Series("GBPUSD", SeriesType.Candle));

Thanks!

For the equity plots the samples are actually automatically calculated based on the length of the backtest. We samples up to 4000 points. But for all plots if you zoom out it will show daily/weekly bars, but if you zoom in the chart re-draws the candles at higher resolutions

Stock plots are currently daily resolution only. Its on our "todo" list to make them higher resolution :) We could make it use hourly plots pretty easily. I'll check into it with @Gustavo.

+1 for this. This would be quite useful in testing whether or not our intra-day strategies have correct and intended entries.

Can the custom charting now display hourly plots?  If I clone the charting sample and plot each hourly price I only seem to get daily results.  Apologies if I am missing something obvious.

Thank you.

Hi KyleHR, the candles we see in the charts results of a combination of single closing prices over a period and not really OHLC information.
We have created a GitHub issue to enable candle charts using TradeBar and will implement it as soon as possible.

Thanks Alexandre that sounds realy good.  And did hourly plots get implemented?  I am referring to Jarred's comment "We could make it use hourly plots pretty easily. I'll check into it with @Gustavo.".

Hi Kyle,

Hourly plots have been implemented but, as Alex mentioned, not yet for candles. If the backtest window is large, then you'll have to zoom in on the chart for the hourly data to register but the plot is at the same resolution as the data subscription.
