Hi Zukkaweb,

When the option 'Use Server Timestamp' is checked, the time of your bars is stamped by IB's server. When this option is unchecked, the bars are timestamped locally on your machine as soon as they arrive. By default, this field is unchecked in QuoteManager settings because, when first introduced by IB, this feature wasn't working properly which used to result in formation of huge bars.
