Update Mode


Update Mode setting defines the formula refreshing frequency:

  • On Each Bar means that it will be recalculated on start of each new bar.


    Important! Use update on each tick mode for all studies that are critical to real time data, such as MAIN (to display real time data).

    Please, be careful using update on each tick mode with highly complex formulas which are require a lot of calculations as this can slow down the application.
