Obtaining range bars that happened before I open the NinjaTrader

Dear friends,
Please, is there a way to get the range bars that happened before the opening of Ninja Trader. Example: I opened the software 9:00 am. How can I get the range bars that happened between 7:00 and 9:00 am.

@Barrosco

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Range bars are built from ticks. You need to connect to a datafeed that offers historical backfill for tick data.

Some brokerfeeds - such as the feed from Interactive Brokers - do not offer historical tick data and when you open a chart at 9:00 AM all you will see are the real-time ticks transmitted from the exchange.

If you subscribe to a datafeed such as Kinetick or DTN/IQ, then you will have historical backfill and your range charts will be automatically filled with data according to the lookback period that you have specified.
