Thanks and I have seen many of those posts. I am looking for a solution which I haven't seen yet. Let me re-ask this in another way. If IB uses uses OHLC for back testing, is it possible to receive live OHLC data from IB such that the back tested data and indicators will align with the live data and indicators?

Guess you still don't get the difference between realtime and what IB provides.
There is no such thing like unfiltered tick data or unfiltered "live" or whatever you call that from IB.
So the answer is no.
