An option to revert to MC 9 style IB forex Trade data

MC 10 has Mid point implementation for IB forex data, but its real time data is only updated every 5 seconds. It's too slow for HFT/scalper. I hope there is an option in IB Data source setting can revert this behavior to MC 9 style which is true real time (Ask for Trade data).

1) IB's RT data is not True Real-time
2) Use Ask for Ask

1) IB's forex data is true real-time. Unlike IB's futres & stokcs data are filtered, IB forex data is not filtered. IB's forex data has more ticks than forex data from most other data feeds.
2) Use Ask for Ask is not an option because Quote field is not linked. If I only want to use Trade quote field for Futures & stocks it can't automatically switch to Ask for forex and back to Trade for futures & stocks.
