Who trade through Interactive Brokers, please support this thread in Ninja forum, that they fix IB adapter. Many traders download history from IB, and not want useless to spend money on External DataFeed.
You not can physically download history more then 1 years, this is absolutely "pacing violation", see picture I download AAPL|ISLAND 1 year, and have "pacing violation" on 10 minute, sorry not on English.
IB have "pacing violation" after 60 request, maximal days per reques +-5.
I write on NJ forum that download block's with 8 month, with this size not have "pacing violation" if one download and wait 10 minutes.
Problem next, I trade on Nasdaq and Xetra ( CHIXDE ), on Nasdaq 100 ticker's, and on Xetra 30. All last night I download manual in NJ tickers from 2010, instead of start to download ticker's and go to sleep, Ninja manager delete this message.
Some time need redownload history from IB server, that have clear quality history. All know that this 100% "pacing violation" if download ticker list, 1-2 ticker's download, all other rejected, and you don't know what download what not.
If you're all silent, they will not do anything in adapters, and sales 3-rd datafeed trustful trader's
About beta and priority, if you can see Release Notes, they only fix their bugs, I not see any improvements that traders write on their forums and what need in NJ 8
I believe you have your answer. NinjaTrader doesn't support this.
If you would rather switch platforms than buy a quality data feed, Sierra Chart does support automatic pacing for IB data.
The obvious answer is don't use IB for data. Their data is terrible. If you are serious about trading, have a serious data feed. If you aren't serious, then why do you need so much historical data. Decide what your priorities are.

The following 2 users say Thank You to Big Mike for this post:
Yes Big Mike, I all see and know, I trade since 1995 year.
Just my attempt to do a little better IB adapter for traders.
IB data in some cases, more suitable and low cost for trading ( example direct routing stock, small amount of ticker, nonUS exchange and other... ), than other 3-rd datafeed, so how is data from broker.
Last time in my computer more work SC and AMI.
Ps. Do not assume that the data from the IB is terrible, they are in some cases much better than what is now available to traders, spikes from ECN in IQFeed and only US stock's, negative price from ESignal and data delayed in RT from few minutes, IB is a broker, this other level responsibility than 3-rd datafeed.

I don't think this is really a high priority issue for NT and I agree with them. There are a lot of other things that would be much more useful than the ability to download lots of free data in NT8.
One of the reasons IB limits the amount of date ( data pacing ) is so they can provide data for free. IB wants you to download a limited amount of data at a time. If you want a lot of data, maybe pay for a data service or use an IB data downloader and import the data into NT.
There is a saying, "You get what you pay for". IB data is cheap for a reason.
