IB Charting

I've been using real tick charting and IB as my broker.

Right now I run a 1 min,3 min, 10 min bar chart(3 diff. charts) with sma5,15,50,200, OBV, %k and %d
15 and 120 tick bar chart with %k and %d sma 5, 15 and OBV.

Can I use IB charts to get this info?
Also can I add a futures chart?

Thank you in advance

Yes but you will find IB charting disappointing.

Try the free trial of Sierra Chart which will let you do this with IB. Depending on what you want you can use a version of SC for between about 10 and 20 per month.

TWS doesn't provide tick charts. Try Sierra Chart like nine said, or Quote Tracker.

Thanks guys Sierra Charts was same as Real Tick except Real Tick charges 200 + exchange fees. Worked good with IB data feed.
