Hello.

Currently, to feed NT with FX data, I have a set of creds from my broker that I use.

However, there are times(like this morning), where it will not backfill the data I am missing for the last day or so , and will only provide the LATEST quote. I assume this is simply my broker not providing any backfill for some reason?

THis usually last for a few hours, will eventually clear itself up... but the issue is intermittent, happens rarely, but it is irritating. Looking for intraday, minute data.

I am just wondering if there is a simple feed I can use that is free, so I can have a backup?

So you are getting real time data, but NT is not loading historical data? Try right clicking on the chart and choose, "Load Historical Data" and see what happens.

Thanks,

I have done that before. It just kills all my historical data, and loads up the latest price quote. I.e., it'll leave a huge gap in data.

Sorry if this sounds like Captain Obvious but ha e you set your historical provider in NT's data feed section? If so, this seems very strange and could be missing data from your provider, it happens.

I forgot about this, but I don't seem to have that option.

I'm pretty sure what is happening, is nothing to do w/NT, but simply an issue with my broker, where the historical data is broken temporarily.

So really there is no fix, other than having a separate backup at times.
