IB Ideal Pro: FX charting need to use 'mid price'

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue
Select Format Instrument, choose IB Ideal Pro FX, settings, quote field, 'trade' results in 'sk' price being displayed on MC chart. Please can you make it possible for MC to instead show 'mid price'. IB ideal pro charts default to 'mid' price (mid point between bid & ask). This works better as it prevents wide spreads from spiking the chart. Thanks. Vote here for Mid-price for Stocks: http://www.multicharts.com/pm/viewissue.php?issue_no=MC-1562
Steps to reproduce this issue

Create chart IB Ideal Pro FX data in MC: see quote is based upon ask and not mid when trades selected, compare to IB FX chart: looks different (ib ideal pro doesn't display trades), needs mid price instead.

Please add Mid price for stocks too, since there are a lot of spikes for "trade" chart. Mid price may help this problem.

I would like to suggest to add this capability for all FX datasources - this would be useful, not only for IB.
