  1. In the reqMktData method you input realTimeBarsOptions for the List<TagValue>. I'm not exactly sure how we're supposed to define this list, how is this done?. The IB docs just state "For internal use only. Use default value XYZ." Also, by setting your genericTicklist to "165" you are pulling in what IB site has marked as "Miscellaneous Stats" , what exactly is this? At the moment I just want to grab bid/ask price for a contract, does this mean genericTicklist = "" and snapshot = true?
    Thanks!
