IB TWS sometimes take a long time to load a chart

  1. i use the "group window" function so that when i select a stock on my watch list, the chart will update automatically. but sometimes it takes like a few minutes for the chart to update. just wonder if some of you guys are experiencing similar problem, or if there is some way to speed up the chart loading.
  2. It might have to do with bandwidth and CPU usage. IB TWS uses a lot of resources because the program tries to do everything.
