If your provider uses Native Time stamping, the Time and Sales won't use your pc clock, it will use the time stamps your provider sends with their data. You should check their help guide to see if your provider has native time stamps (something like CQG or Zen-Fire will be native). It's most likley that you are using a provider who is using native time stamping and your pc clock is out of sync with their servers. You should sync your PC clock to a windows time server from the Internet Time tab of the date/time settings.
Thanks for the reply. The system clock is fine, and today there are no problems with the timing.
I discovered that Windows automatic update was turned on, and yesterday there was a big update, so perhaps my bandwidth was compromised that. Still seems strange, though, since my NT setup uses very little bandwidth.
Since when did NT 7 implement historical bid/ask? I think that chart is wrong, seems to be talking about market replay or something and not about actual implementation of historical bid/ask with backfill on your real-time charts.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

No , they have historical bid and ask time series, but they are considered as another price type (types are Last, Bid, Ask), and these values are stored as independant time series not synchronized with the main time series.
