I Need to receive the last available Bid/Ask prices of a security, futures option in my case.
In order to achieve this goal I request Tick data:

MyID = Client.Subscriptions.Ticks.Subscribe(MyContract.ID, Client.Subscriptions.Ticks.Duration.Create(1)).ID;

I assume that Client.Subscriptions.Ticks.Duration.Create(1) means the last available tick.
This kinda works because I get some prices, but this price is not the last Bid/Ask quote.

Probably I'm doing something wrong. Any Suggestion?

There is no bid or ask for Tick. Tick is a trade and offers a price. A Quote will provide: Bid/Ask/Last/etc.
