Hi All,

I am using Motivewave Community version and am importing data from CSV with "Monitor input file for changes" option selected. I observed that it only looks for new data when there is a change in bar size/Interval. I am updating the files in background in regular interval and i need to keep changing bar size/Interval to see the new data.

Can someone know a work around for this?

Yes., There is more problem while we using the CSV or txt import..
for example if we import on 26-05-2021 at 5:03 with 30 min interval chart.. after couple of minutes if we update the csv or txt. The Motivewave chart is not updating OHLC bar accordingly. So if the time goes to 5:30. The bar updates just at the current bar. Because of the problem 5:00 bar OHLC is completely mismatching with CSV or TXT file data.

Also the the tool File-->Chart--->Import Data must be available to add in the top toolbar options. Without it every time user must click File-->Chart--->Import Data :rolleyes:

What is really problem with CSV,ASCII import?.
Here you go
I imported 1 min csv at 03:24(hh:mm) when the seconds was 30 the candle price was 1.21221,1.21222,1.21214,1.21216 (O,H,L,C) but when I imported after end of the 03:24 the price in CSV is 1.21221,1.21229,1.21214,1.21226 (O,H,L,C) but the Motivewave chart price remaining as same (1.21221,1.21222,1.21214,1.21216 (O,H,L,C)).

Kind Regards


PS: The same goes if we update the 30 min csv data in the middle of the 30 min

Download the CSV and use import function EURUSD1.csv Which is downloaded data on 15th second of 11:28 and let the chart open. now download and replace this EURUSD1.csv which is downloaded data on 25th second of 11:29.. and change the time frame to 5 min and and come again to 1 min. You will see a gap down which is not having proper update..

PS: I found the temporary solution. Before updating the csv deleting last bar by right click on that bar and updating the csv gives correct result.

Also found if we have enabled the Bid indicator. It's not updating according to the data.
