"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads.

Could someone tell me the difference between Tenfore ABBA and COMP symbols for forex, for example EURUSD.ABBA and EURUSD.COMP - how are these calculated?

Hello one541
We will have our data team look into how the ABBA average best/bid ask and the COMP composite are calculated on the Tenfore. We will have an answer within 24 hours
Thanks
Todd

Thank you for your forum post.

ABBA - Is a Calculation or the average bid and ask quote calculated by TENFORE.

COMP - Is a composite of the bid/ask which it shows the latest (Current) bid/ask from one of the contributors.

The COMP is always the most current quote.
