    I am currently testing the tick base time and it works fine up to now. Tick charts are quite interesting as it gives you a different perspective. It is nice to see this long-awaited feature now available for IQfeed users. However I have a question: what is the most appropriate number of bars (in the database setup) ? I have used 100000 so far but could any problem occur if I choose 1millon+ ?
