On release of next beta, any existing DTN/IQFeed user can create a Kinetick connection and plug in their DTN/IQFeed login credentials to test out this new feed. This access is temporary and will be removed once in production. In addition, there is a pre-configured EOD conection that is always there and free for historical stocks, futures and forex daily data.

Great, now all they gotta do is fix the bid/ask time stamp issue that everyone's been asking about for the past 3+ years... Looks like they're still busy with ninja 7 beta and won't have time for that... oh and it looks like their new market data feed with a new api built from scratch... They had time for that.

I'm glad to see at least a better and free EOD provider included above and beyond Yahoo and not having to get minute data from ZenFire then setting my chart session time to match the RTH so I can then extrapolate my own daily data for futures.
I posted a message at the NT forum, will wait and see what the reply might be. The reason you are getting 06-08 is you must have your Daily chart set up for 2 years. 06-08 would be the first required contract to load data from to make a 2 year chart.
Had a look at various futures contracts and daily data supplied via Kinetick. Here are my first impressions on the futures data
- I could only load continuous contracts (##-##), no individual contracts were available
- The continuous contracts were not backadjusted
- Some of the symbol maps (for example DX and KC) do not work
- The daily futures data is sometimes more false than correct (for example BC, CC, CT, EMD, GC, SI, HG)
The quality of the daily data is not impressive. It is actually worse than Interactive Brokers. Daily charts added.
Hope this will get better in some time.
Edited: Just to be fair, the charts below all use a false symbol mapping, once I changed the symbol mapping, the price data was correct, the volume data is still not convincing.
