Request tick data every second

Hi

I need to include a timer [OnTimedEvent()] in my trading system to do a time comparison so I need to have a tick every second if I'm to use the NewTick method.

Problem is IB does not send tick every second for all symbols.

One of the threads suggested using a pseudo live data plugin to simulate this. http://www.rightedgesystems.com/forums/Topic10554-7-1.aspx?Highlight=ontimedevent

Query:

a/ is there a better way to do this in the trading system rather than create a pseudo plugin?

b/ is it possible to request IB to send tick every second?

c/ if the pseudo plugin method is the way to go, which live data retrieval plugin would be the easiest to change to create this?


Thanks!
