Version 1594, to be released, of Sierra Chart supports delayed data from Interactive Brokers TWS if real-time data is not available for a symbol.

The process is automatic and there is nothing special to do.

-We have not tested this. We were not able to test this with our account we use with Interactive Brokers.
- Trade time stamping will be according to the current time. Currently we do not know a way around this. So inherently this feature is going to be confusing.
- Since we have not tested this, we are concerned that there could be potential problems affecting the normal real-time data. Let us know.

Yes we know, that none of the above sounds very good, but this is just simply the nature of the Interactive Brokers system.

There should not even have to be any special implementation.. Interactive Brokers should automatically provide delayed data with proper time stamping without having to do anything special. So all issues are the responsibility of Interactive Brokers. It really is kind of a big joke, there is no timestamp.
