Thank you wldman. The problem for me is that because of the 1 second delay in IB workstation time compared to my pc time (still exist after sync), the chart shown in Ninjatrader will not be the same as it in IB. Especially when the market moves fast, the bars would be very different as the last price take place in 5min bar would be counted into the beginning of next 5min bar.....

I recently had an issue with Interactive Brokers. I was running Ninja Charts with IB Data. At the same time I had a ThinkorSwim chart up on another computer. I had both charts on the SPY but the bars were different. For example, where there was a down bear bar on ThinkorSwim there would be a bull bar on the Ninja chart. I then resynched my computer and reloaded the Ninja chart. After that, both charts showed the same bars. I am now going to resynch my computer before every session. But, I don't understand why I don't need to do this with ThinkorSwim and it always works correctly.
