Backfill using Trade Tiger Intraday Charts

Using Intraday chart features of TradeTiger, it is possible to backfill for one day. When a intraday chart is
opened in Trade Tiger, ticklisting data is automatically saved in intraday charts folder which can be used for
automated backfill. This does not require, manual ticklisting import.

Further with "Graphical View" feature of Trade Tiger, which can open up to 6 intraday charts, 6 symbols in
Trade Tiger can be automatically backfilled.
Specify the intraday chart folder for TradeTiger. It is usually "C:\Sharekhan\TradeTiger\ChartData\Intraday".
Further ManshiRT should detect it correctly in most of the cases.
