Added a new indicator called TickRefresh.

This indicator allows the chart to refresh on each tick or price change.
The current default is 250ms or 4 frames per second.
Now you can go up to 1000 frames per second.

Refresh Time Interval in Milliseconds = Number of milliseconds between chart refreshes.
Under "Set up > Calculate" choose between updates on each tick or each price price change.

Example values for Refresh Time Interval:
0 = no delay, update immediately on every tick or price change.
1 = maximum of 1000 updates per second.
10 = maximum of 100 updates per second.
20 = maximum of 50 updates per second.
100 = maximum of 10 updates per second.

The sane default is 10 milliseconds equal to 100 fps.
You can set it to 0 but lag may occur if your computer cannot keep up.
