Is there a way to show Chart Patterns in Live streaming charts?
When I backtest or open a chart the historical patterns show but when I set it to Auto trade the live forming patterns do not show anymore. Am I missing a setting?. All patterns show fine in historical charts but not in live charts. Please advise.

One difference is that there are far fewer bars loaded on the right.
My first guess is that you didn't load enough data to perform the same calculation.

@Cone, I see but If you look at the right live chart the pattern was shown correctly on the previous session (Big Yellow arrows) also the strategy sent the order live as in the backtest version (Big red arrows). It just didn't draw the pattern (Gray plots). I can't figure out why.

Okay, let me say it another way: Load the same date range.

The left chart starts on 10/10/23 and the right starts on 1/29/2024. You're missing data on the right that might be required.
I don't know if it's required because I don't have the strategy. It's just a [good] guess.

I don't think it is a data issue. I closed WL8 and reopen it and the pattern shows as you can see still data starts 1/29/24 because the pattern is now in historical data but no new chart patterns will form live. See red arrows.

hmmm, I see.
We'll have to try to duplicate that to see why it's happening.

You're working with a rule like this one, right?
Is Unconfirmed checked? (we just want to use the same set up) -

Thanks, It happens on and off with various symbols. I've used Double Tops and Bottoms only so far. This is the block strategy.

I did not check Unconfirmed.

Yes, this is a limitation of the current design. It's implemented as an Event Provider, which does not generate or check for new events on each new bar. Let's add the #FeatureRequest tag to see if we can't enhance that in the future!
