Has anyone used the MultiCharts version that is now offered by IB?
Interested in this too. The following user says Thank You to stjg for this post: I tried it a few times, but the data feed connection errors annoyed me too much. I found a thread on the EliteTrader board, if I remember right, but the Multichart guy was saying something like "it's Interacve Brokers fault", I could, by that time not extract any helpful information from that thread.
IB has two data feeds. The regular "live" feed that generates charting errors because it is a truncated feed and a True Data feed that sends the correct open, high, low and close every five seconds.
If you put up a chart in TWS and watch closely the configuration of the bars sometimes changes every five seconds. This is especially noticeable at the start of a bar. Apparently the TWS charts automatically use both feeds but as far as I know, no third party charts do although Sierra has an add-on that does so. It would be nice if MC built that into the IB version. The following user says Thank You to Bookworm for this post: Historical backfilling of data is a limitation because you'll have to take your time for this, but given the cost of IB's data feed this is not so surprising.
Tick based charts will create a pacing violation after trying to load more than a couple of days at a time. So this might take a while if you are trying to download several symbols and several days.

All in all I agree though loading data via IB can take a lot of time, especially when it's intraday data.
