    I'm trying to figure out what is accurate for quotes ...

    I dont have the bid and ask of metatrader and dealbook

    but IB lists the

    GBP - USD/GBP at 10:29 eastern as 1.8990/1.8991
    meta trader lists the quote as 85 and deal book as 87

    so what is the accurate quote? also is there a trick to pulling up a IB forex chart? cant seem to figure it out ...

    IB doesn't provide last sale data, so those graphs don't work.

    I use mid point, bid/ask to produce charts.

    Would welcome other ideas/suggestions from IB/IB clients.

    Good luck!
