Candles Upgrades 

This release contains an upgrade to our candles data. Both spot and futures market candles data are now available at the 1 minute frequency in addition to the 5 minute, 10 minute, 15 minute, 1 hour, 4 hour, and 1 day frequencies. In addition, all candles are now gapless. We fill forward candles through time by setting the open, high, low, and close to the close of the previous candle, setting the VWAP to the VWAP of the previous candle, and setting the volume to zero.
