updated information....

Image

can see that from the uploaded screenshot, not all stocks show error charting...

we can see that the us stocks is ok, some of the hk stocks are also fine.

others have error in charting, e.g. daily chart in the screen shot.

they all have the same settings, do i miss any thing? thanks :-)

Hello John,

In Multicharts please go to File tab->Preferences->Data server mode.
Make sure you are in online mode, "download missing historical data" is enabled.

Are you able to plot more daily bars for HK Stocks in IB TWS ?

In Quote Manager go to Tools->Data feeds->IB->Settings->check that "Download historical data" is checked.
Try to plot a chart for the symbols "5", "941". Specify the data range 100 days back in Format instrument->Settings tab. Reload the chart using Ctrl+R.
