It's not a bug...

NeoTicker doesn't work like TS in reading CSV files directly into a chart. What you do is use the NeoTicker "Cache Manager" to import the CSV file data into the chart.

Take a look on the "Manager" menu for "Cache..." The select whichever of the "Import..." tabs is appropriate for what you want to accomplish.

The value of the NeoTicker approach to CSV file import is simply this... When you do the CSV file import NeoTicker converts that data into it's proprietary and fast tick file format. You only need to import once and then you're set.

You ought to really post questions like at the active NeoTicker Forum at the link below if you're seriously expecting to get assistance.

Actually, CSV files can be used directly, but it must have a recognizable header line.

For example, if your CSV file is a standard daily data text file, then a header line like this must be there,

date,open,high,low,close,volume

I'm still learning about NeoTicker features 16 months after I began...

aspTrader, the developers can't disclose everything at once - they would lose their mystique then :))

Lawrence - great feature. I guess somewhere the exact keywords that are recognizable in the .CSV header line are described.

I'm using the CSV format heavily in my development.
