I’m creating stock OHLC Bar Charts. My users have asked me if I can create a chart such that when the trading is open and there are no trades, the X Axis behaves like a DateTimeAxis and empty space appears on the chart in the X direction between trades. However, they would like the times that trading to does not take place to not appear on the X Axis so that there is no space between the last minute of open trading for one trading session and the next minute of trading for the next session. Is such a chart possible with Sci Charts?
In the attached file, find the pictures I have created showing per minute bars for symbol ESZ5. Instrument ESZ5 does not trade from 3:15 -3:30. In each file, I have placed a pointer and hovered over the bar to show the date/time for the bar at 3:14 (the last bar from 3:14-3:15) and the next bar at 3:30. Finally, I am showing a gap in trading from around 17:24-17:44. As this is a time span that trading can occur, the users would like to see the display indicate that no trades happened by having the gap. However, for the 3:15-3:30 time span where trades cannot happen, the users want no gap to occur.
