Exporting Ask Price

I searched the forum some but I’m still clueless.

I’m interested to export tick data for AmiBroker.
I noticed that the AB tick format is : BidPrice, BidPrice, BidPrice, BidPrice (4 times, a bit of waste, no BidVolume)

I am wondering if there is a way to choose to export ASK tick data instead of BID for AmiBroker ? because I didn’t find the option.
Even better, couldn’t you not reconstitute BID/ASK quotes (+volume) from the BID/ASK downloads ? in order to backtest oerfect entry / exit executions based on real available book.

Thanks for your time!

Hi Bernard,

Yes, you can export Ask Price from Tickstory by simply specifying the following token in the file export specification:

Code: Select all

Of course, make sure you have set your time-frame to "Tick" to make sure Bid/Ask/Tick related information is available.

A video instruction of this is provided here:

Also, please consult our manual which has a list of available tokens that can be output during the file export: ... le_exports
