// This is where the action is. params will tell you what the chart needs (symbol, interval, date ranges)
// Use that data to construct your query. Use our ajax, or jquery, or any other method to fetch the data
// Make sure it's in the right format and return it in the callback like below.  
// Always use cb() to return data from fetch methods!  Even errors. 

// This method is called by the chart to fetch initial data

        quotes: JSON.parse(response),
        moreAvailable: true
    } else {
        error: (response ? response : status)

  // This sample assumes the response returns only the data and in the right format.
  // Put your code here to format the response according to the specs 
  // and return it in the callback.
  // Example code to iterate trough the responses and load them one at a time:
  //	var quotes=formatQuotes(response);  // your function to creates a properly formatted array.
  //	var newQuotes=[];
  //	for(var i=0;i<quotes.length;i++){
  //		newQuotes[i]={};
  //		newQuotes[i].Date=quotes[i][0]; // Or set newQuotes[i].DT if you have a JS Date
  //		newQuotes[i].Open=quotes[i][1];
  //		newQuotes[i].High=quotes[i][2];
  //		newQuotes[i].Low=quotes[i][3];
  //		newQuotes[i].Close=quotes[i][4];
  //		newQuotes[i].Volume=quotes[i][5];
  //		newQuotes[i].Adj_Close=quotes[i][6];
  //	}

  // Set 'moreAvailable' to 'true' if you know that more, older, 
  // data is available for when the user scrolls back in time.
  // Your feed should send back an indicator you can use to determine if more data is available.
  // Our sample does not have more data, so we set to 'false'.

  //  		cb({error:status}); // something went wrong, use callback function to return your error
  //  		return;

  // Put your code here to format the response according
  // to the specs and return it in the call back.
  // cb({quotes: yourData});  // no need to set moreAvailable for a refresh;
  // Make sure the data returned is for the startDate requested, or newer.
