IB charts not updating automatically?

  1. build 888.2

    the numbers are moving, but the candles arent painting without a manual 'refresh'

    yes, i have automaticall update charts checked, have 'toggled' that checkbox

    also, what's that new orange 2nd number on the charts above/below - is it some kind of momentary support resistance?
  2. IB charts suck the sweat off a dead man's balls.

    Use IB data with Quote Tracker.

    Credit for the above line to "Good Morning Vietnam."
  3. When I re-install QT, I only get a week's data, and have to wait for the other week to fill in. I asked Jerry about it, that's the way it is. I always tell people that QT is the shit, but if you haven't otherwise captured your screenshots for historical purposes, QT is not good for backtesting historically after re-imaging your box.
  4. i removed my post because i solved it

    when i originally set it up, i accidently selected the data sourcce above IB

    i fixed it, but it reverted to the old source today

    changing back to ib data source made the backfill reapear

    interestingly, IB charts started working again

    anyone know what ib chart's 2nd orange number is?
