Force Refresh #
This option allows you to set a timer option (Timer (Ms)) that allows you to force the refresh rate of the NinjaTrader chart. By default, NinjaTrader refreshes the chart at 200ms but you can force the refresh if you want. Please understand that setting the value of the timer too low will impact performance.
