Chart Data Availability/Support

Jigsaw daytradr allows you to connect to broker feeds (CQG, GAIN, Rithmic, IB TWS), data feeds (IQFeed) and other platforms (NinjaTrader 8, MT5).

 

Charts are supported for broker feeds and data feeds only. We do not support charts via the bridge to NT8 and MT5. The rational for our decision was that:

These platforms are already charting platforms. The reason we are implementing charts is to help reduce the cost of having an additional charting platform. We don't see the upside in

We don't want to over-burden the bridge connection with additional data for charts.

There is significant investment/time required to support charts over the bridge & we have funded all charting functionality ourselves and given it to users for free. As such, we will later poll the users to find if a 1 off cost will be acceptable to implement charting for MT5 and NT8.

 

For the APIs we connect to, each has a different amount of historical data available and different capabilities when it comes to backfilling trade information for Cumulative Delta and FootPrint charts. The notes below should help you understand how much historical data is available for your broker feed.
