    Dynamic DataSeries

    I understand we cannot add data series dynamically although I really would like to be able to add and remove one to the end but only because I want the ability to get the current price when my strategy is processing on slower timeframes for the specific point in time. While I could add a smaller timeframe and ignore it, I only require the current price infrequently and was wondering is there a function call that I can query for the exact price without adding another timeframe and incurring the processing hit?

    You may say, the current timeframe executing has the exact price - but I run a timer that operates in between the timeframes that I can turn on and off. When that triggers, between the longer running timeframes - the price is not current. If there was a call I could make - it could eliminate the need to put a tick or second timeframe that otherwise would not be used for the majority of the time.

    Is this possible?

    Hello MarketAlly,

    Thank you for the post.

    Generally adding a series is the easiest/least syntax way to do this. However, if the series is not being used at all and you are doing something out of sync such a just checking a price, you might look into using a BarsRequest to subscribe to data and set the current price to a variable which your timer logic reads.

    You could use a small lookback period to request minimal data, you can ignore the historical data and then just use the market data subscription for the live prices. Storing the price to a variable would eliminate the need to repeat the bar's request, the timer loop would read the variables value for a live price.



    I look forward to being of further assistance.
