Hi Support,


I was testing OpenAPIv2 getting historical trend bars of EURUSD.

In the object ProtoOATrendbar, the document writes

required int64 volume = 3; // Bar volume in cents.

it sounds like first I need to multiple by 100 ("in cents").

after that, may I know if any more conversion need to be applied on this field? like multiplying symbol's stepVolume etc.

Hi hsbcstor,

This is a misprint. Volume is provided in ticks not in cents. We will fix the documentation.
