IB TWS - short utilization ratio updated real-time, daily, other?

  1. Hi everyone,

    How often does IB update the short utilization ratio (named just "utilization" as a column in TWS watchlists)? Everyone at IB gives a different answer. I've heard real-time, daily, weekly, and q 2 weeks. Real-time makes the most sense to me as that ratio reflects how many shares available for shorting are currently being shorted by IB clients, and this is reflected presumably in their short interest fee rate which is real-time forsure in my understanding. Throw some wisdom at me; thank you!
