    Range Bars using Calculate.OnEachTick useless?

    If the data series is set to Range Bars, what does calculate on each tick do in the strategy? is it basically useless as the bar is not complete unless a range of x up/down ticks is completed.

    Same as any other bar? Up and down inside the bar.

      Hello Boonfly8,

      Thanks for your post.

      Calculate.OnEachTick means that your code is run on every incoming tick of data regardless if the price changes.

      Calculate.OnPriceChange means that your code will run if the current price is not equal to the previous price, which can occur on each tick but would skip processing on a particular tick if the price has not changed.

      Calculate.OnBarClose means your code is run only once per bar when it has closed. This is also how your historical data is processed.
