18 -24 Second Delay Before Candle Next Candle Starts

Hi, I've noticed that on my charts there is a 18-24 second delay before the next candle start. For example, on a 2 or 5 min chart, I have seen over and over, when the current candle countdown clock reaches 0:00 that same candle will keep changing price for 18-24 seconds, then the next candle starts at, for a 2 min chart, 1:42 or right around there by a few seconds.

There are contracts being traded. I think if there are no contracts being traded then it would act like this, but this happens consistently all day.

I'm not sure how long it has been doing this because I have only started to concentrate on smaller charts. Also I am running version 1187 and have high speed internet. Thank you.
