load chart / symbol by tick as an option for indicators to access as they load - similar to Bar Magnifier and Volume Profile

Description

There are instances when you can not load an indicator by tick, it takes some # of bars to be correct when loading each historical bar @ close and then real-time comes in by tick.

In one particular case, I have an indicator that does net buy / sell volume. It is crazy to think the volume for each historical bar is either all buy or all sell. But if I only get the historical bars loading @ close then that has to be the assumption. Once Data starts to come in real time and each tick / trade is read, then things start to look more realistic.

This is very problematic if I need to reload a chart / symbol during the day. In Ninja Trader 8 there is check box on the symbol details window of the chart that can be checked to load / reload data by tick.

I think this is similar to what is currently available for "Strategy" - Bar Magnifier.

Also, I use Volume Profile. As you might imagine, it shows data being loaded by tick to get the volume profile correct. What can't this ability be extended to indicators?
