I have now for a long time problem with NT7 tick charts with IB data. You can see in my screenshot, sec or tick, that the LAST are different then BID and ASK. Actually the LAST data jumps around or it does nothing. I looked in the Historical Data Manager and the LAST data there are wrong too, it looks like NT does not record the data properly.
"NT does not have a clock, but uses frequently your computer date/time.
Syncing your computer clock with the built in Windows utility is a good way to get it as accurate as possible
and IB likely uses a heavier duty version of this."
I looked and I have a difference from 6 sec. between IB and my computer, but I don't know it that are problem.
Has somebody else the same problem like me and what did you do?
Well the data is inaccurate, because it is filtered. You may be fine with it, but just know it is only snapshot data and is not accurate.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
