Importing tick data

Just signed up for trial and would like to do some backtesting.

Disappointed to see my data provider, CQG, is not supported.

Would like to import tick data, but I don’t see an option for importing ‘Last, Bid, Ask’ tick format, only OHLC.

Is there a way to do this?

Hi Randall,

You can import intraday data from a .csv file but I’m not sure about tick data. If you would like to try here’s how to format and import the data:

Once imported restart Optuma and you will then be able to change the timeframe to 1 Tick under Customise:

Thanks, it worked.

tick data format is:
Date,Time,Price,Bid,Ask,Volume
05/14/24,09:00:00,39589,39589,39590,2

I imported using:
Date,Time,Close,Low,High,Volume
