Hello, it's well known that IB provide snapshot data feed. I am connecting to tws and downloading minute-based not tick data for my charts. the charts look different when I refresh past data. to alleviate this, I am refreshing the most recent bar each hour or 30-min ('Delete and Download Data'). this works well, but is tedious. after refreshing, the data is solid, but it needs to be refreshed once for every new bar. would be great to have Sierra do ths automatically.
also, I remember a setting where the delay time for notices on the chart, like ("Please wait while historical bars downloaded . . .") could be changed. appreciate any help, thanks.
