    How do you get forex charts to work in TWS? every time i click on Realtime Charts it says that it can't get data for IDEALPRO

    Select MIDPOINT, instead of LAST...that will work

    (and I hope IB-programming makes that the default setting for FX once...toooo many unexperienced traders do not understand it...the software should anticipate on this !)

    Hope it helps

    yeah that works. Thanks.. IB makes it clear that they are not designed for new traders. I could see why they wouldn't change it...but it would be nice to have forex settings.
