Been experiencing access issues today, both on the CQG platform as well as via NinjaTrader with a Continuum (which is CQG) login.

CQG are aware, they sent out this comms

FWIW same issue on Sierra Chart fed by CQG data (appears now to be fixed as well).

Anyone using CQG trader with data other than Amp

Wondering if this is an Amp limitation or Qtrader

) Outrights Data: Only until Sept/Oct 2015 from Amp through CQG Fix (how can i get more historical data)

Spread Charts:
For more complex/synthetic spreads i.e. not exchange calendars, i am trying to chart present and historic charts like below. You can chart using SPREAD or BAR command.. I am looking to get candlesticks and NOT just lines (lines work fine)

a1) BAR(CLES1Z8-CLES1Z9,1) - this works with candlesticks but data is only until July 18

a2) If i put in the same as SPREAD(CLES1Z8-CLES1Z9), i get a line chart all the way until Oct 2015

Now historical,

b1) SPREAD(CLES1Z6-CLES1Z7) - nothing shows up (says contract not available)

b2) BAR(CLES1Z6-CLES1Z7,1) - nothing shows up and says CLES1Z7 contract not available (though CLES1z16 and cles1z17 both show up)

I tried this using full year - still nothing but no error message
SPREAD(CLES1Z16-CLES1Z17) - this shows up using the full year but of course only line

c1) BAR(CLES1Z18-2*CLES1F19+CLES1G19,1) this works with candlesticks but data is only until July 18

c2) Tried the same with historical data BAR(CLES1Z16-2*CLES1F17+CLES1G17,1) and nothing shows up

Sorry I can't help you with options, I know absolutely nothing about them.

As for outrights, I see daily bars back to Sept/Oct 2015 same as you. Smaller time frames, e.g. 5 mins bar I see only 3 months back. That's how much I'm told QTrader holds.

You could probably get more historical data through CQG, it'll cost you though.
