Forex spot and IB

I have a problem in RE connecting forex spot quotes to IB data. I try to place EUR.USD in many different ways in Rightedge, but the quotes do not update. EUR/USD, EUR.USD/USD I have also tried. Note that I have managed to get all other quotes. This is the only problem I have seen.

Anyone else experienced this and know a solution?

The answer is from the thread "RE/IB FX trading":

This error is because IB doesn't provide trade data for Forex, just bid/ask. Change the "Construct bars from" option to Mid and it should work.

The Contract Size should probably be 1.
