Am I correct bid ask quote data basically don't exist for IB in QC cloud at the moment? I did not try tick resolution, but for this particular algo I need lower resolution because of a larger number of equities.

Given a fixed set of equities and trade times, I guess an alternative is to data mine Yahoo for this information. But if I'm doing something wrong that makes Security.BidPrice and .AskPrice == 0, do let me know.
