IB does not provide historical data
Only real-time data.
Use data feeds such as IQ FEED

IB is limiting the amount of data it gives out. You can only load a very small chunk of data before it hangs up. I use IB for trading and a data provider for the unfiltered real-time data.

same problem, normally caused by connection problem, after checked those log files and trace files, suggested by Ninjatrader supporter.
Fixed once upgraded TWS version, don't use lastest version , stable version may help, even use lastest Ninjatrader version may fixed sth.
still got "received unknow error/warning: sec-def data farm connections is broken:secdefil" time to time everyday, no idea what I can do, but chart frzzing problem can be fixed by TWS stable version.

Cheers

Tks

Downgrade your TWS to 981.3i. It's a problem with the version 10 series. The 981's work fine.

Also, be aware that for the e-minis, the Exchange name GLOBEX has changed to CME. This affects the crypto names too (CMECRYPTO -> CME).

In the near futures, the metals will change from NYMEX to COMEX and the ECBOT Exchange symbols will switch to CBOT.
