I want to create a watchboard in myCustomPane1 with the following Daily data: Stock Symbol, Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, Last, Time, Change from previous day's close at 4pm. Is there code for this or where can I find the data? I would like to have 10 Stocks in a column type display.

I'm looking for the correct syntax to take each tick of a given symbol and get the change from the previous day's close. I can get the close of each bar but I don't want a 1 minute bar, just a 1 tick bar. Please advise.

Note:
A Strategy Window processes the script exactly once when the bar ends; if it´s a 1-Minute bar chart, then the script runs only once each minute. So no matter what the code is, you cannot display or process tick information unless your bars are ticks.

Topic starter asked for a Daily "watchboard" and the Data Tool fits it perfectly without the need to program. Referring to ticks, unavailable in Fidelity's data feed, creates confusion.

Apologies to the board regarding my recent inquiry. I was not aware Fidelity doesn't provide a tick stream. But the question persists in yet another form: Is it possible to capture ticks as they come into the 1 minute bar? These ticks are in plain sight in a 1 minute bar chart as the current bar is active during the one minute duration that it is forming. Also, how could one determine how many ticks are in each one-minute bar? Thanks in advance for any insight into this question.

No, not possible to both questions (and not required). Check out to understand how Wealth-Lab works with data:

Thank you for guiding me through the data and strategy methodology. I am new to this; but have learned much since I became aware of Wealth Lab. Much appreciated!
