whatever quote field I pick, the tick chart does not record data properly. Historical look different to live, it basically hardly moves with long bars and no progress. The previous version worked fine! Please fix this!

Re: MULTICHARTS 10.0 BETA 1

The FX data through the IB API is very bad now, the charts used to be almost the same as in the Traderworkstation, now they are missing a lot of ticks. A tick chart barely moves and will just have lots of long bars up and down!

Can this be fixed please??
