Thank you for your feedback and for bringing this to our attention.
We’ve reached out to our developers regarding this “issue” and apparently, it is just a limitation of Forex data through OANDA.
According to our developers, OANDA does not provide historical tick data at all and the seconds timeframe is minimal. That being said, they do not provide historical tick data, but our platform does receive bid/ask quotes. So after enough time, you will see tick data load something onto your chart!
Unfortunately, through OANDA, tick data on charts is somewhat limited. If you use the Rithmic data feed to trade futures, you should not encounter these issues. We’ll discuss with our developers on whether or not it is possible to hide tick data selections while using OANDA in order to make time interval/chart styles easier to use while trading Forex.
Thanks for your question and let us know if there is anything else we can help you with! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need further clarification or if you encounter any other issues.
Thanks for your time,
Optimus Futures Support
