New CandlePRO v5 (beta) feature: Data integrity warnings

Thanks @cadtek for discovering another bug in the v5 beta when he discovered that some Aussie data was being improperly reported in the backtesting (remember to always show charts and review the backtesting data for yourself!). While we already had some data checks in place to notify us when irregularities were detected in response we have exposed those warnings to you to give you a heads-up when there might be a data problem:


data gap detection

data gap detection

While the vast majority of these warnings are going to be normal market occurrences (for example a weekend gap or a big news moving event) we felt it was important to give you as much information about the data as we can to help you make more informed trading and strategy decisions.

Email us at with any questions!

Happy pipping,
