1. Is there a way to auto-backfill when electing a new symbol for charting?
2. Any Grid samples you can pass our way?
3. Sent crash report on IB symbol lookup tool. Any references for getting futures contracts, i.e. ym, es, nq, etc?
4. Time and Sales: Need a volume filter.

Also, T&S window I see a control for not showing bid/ask refreshes (i.e. I only want trades) but they show regardless of setting?

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
