[User Discussion] - USDX Dollar not downloading delayed intraday data from IB TWS as selected service

Please add back support for DX Dollar delayed intraday futures data for IB TWS symbol DX-202309-NYBOT (USDX Dollar). I am only interested in delayed data for this 1 symbol in IB TWS. I don't need delayed data for any other symbol. This was implemented when IB TWS was changed to allow fractional share orders and Sierra Chart could not download intraday backfill data from IB TWS.

Support for delayed intraday futures data was removed back in February 2023 for the reason listed in the thread below:

Please refer to this thread: USDX Dollar not downloading delayed intraday data for SC 2480 and IB TWS 10.21.1m

When a date is specified in the DX-2023-09-NYBOT Settings Window >> Data Limiting >> Date Range File From (YYYY-MM-DD) field: 2023-07-10 and Chart Data Type (List) Intraday Chart, the date field is reset to blank and Date Range in File (YYYY-MM-DD) (Read Only) is never populated. "Use Number Of Days To Load" does not work either.

All I get is a blank chart with no data or studies.

Sorry, delayed data from Interactive Brokers is not supported. It is not supported at all. And it is not coming back.

Please do not ask us about this further. It is never coming back.

We do not know. This is research we would not be performing.

I use a work around.

1) Symbol USDX is available in SC under FX Indexes. Create a clean chart for USDX. USDX is real-time data. This is equivalent to DXY in TradingView. I use a Flex Renko Inverse chart SC for USDX. You can use 500-250-1000 or 200-100-400 for the settings.

2) Investing dot com has real-time derived data for US DX Dollar Futures DXM24.

https://www.investing.com/currencies/us-dollar-index-streaming-chart

3) Subtract the DXM24 price (2) from USDX price (1). This is 0.255 today. Check everyday.

4) Add the Study Subgraph Subtract study to the USDX chart. Set the amount to subtract to 0.255. Under Subgraphs change the Draw Style: Star and Width/Size: 4.

You will end up with a pretty good approximation of the ICE DX Dollars Futures DXM24 real-time price.

I downloaded SC Version 2458 that had IB DX Dollar delayed data support. I tried running IB TWS Versions 1019.1c (Oct 2022) and 1020.1f (Dec 2022). I get the following error message in IB TWS: The version of the application you are running 1019.1c is no longer supported. Please download the current version from our website. It is not possible to go back and run an older IB TWS version with SC Version 2458 any longer. SC Version 2480 is the version where IB DX Dollar delayed data support was removed.

I use the work around above.

Thank you, that's helpful, for our purposes SC USDX is good enough real-time approximation of DX, however delayed intraday data for other ICE symbols IB provides would be very useful, or any way to update ICE symbol intraday and historical charts in SC prior to end of day.
