    Market data from yahoo MAY already include corrections and filters for certain trade types. Refresh the IB chart if you have the recording from their "realtime" data, you may see a different chart then due to tapping their historical (and hopefully corrected) database.

    Demo system is quasi random data.
  8. you saying ib uses different data for demo?

    both charts are same period
  9. Yes, the charts you see in the TWS demo are just random numbers generated by a computer and not real stock values at all. They also move in a very different way during real time so it's pretty useless if you want to practice paper trading.
