CustomSymbol Market Watch big/ask

 

For a CustomSymbol, I was able to get the rates updated for the charts. But the Market Watch still shows them as blanks. What is missing?

I tried CustomSymbolSetDouble for symbol,SYMBOL_BID and SYMBOL_ASK and also tried CustomTicksReplace but made no difference.

What am I missing?

Thanks @fxsaber. I did not want to unnecessarily fill out the tick database, so was using CustomTicksReplace, but it does not update the Market Watch.

 

@fxsaber How many maximum custom symbols is allowed in MT5?
