I just tried, still not getting 120 days even after the patch. I guess I will wait until later tonight, not sure the exact time of their session switch.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

IQFeed full span 120 days historical tick data download

I just received an answer from IQFeed on hours for full span 120 days download:

"You would be able to download the full 120 days of historical tick data for any contract anytime other than normal market hours. From about 930am eastern time until 4pm eastern time you are only able to access 8 days of tick data. Anytime outside of that period you can download the full span."

Hey all,

I just downloaded multicharts DT over the weekend, and it's giving me fits trying to get symbols in and showing data. I have an iqfeed subscription with CME data, in Ninjatrader I use the Symbol 6E##-## to get continuous contract data. However, in Multicharts there is not even a 6E symbol when I try and load a symbol from data feed in to the symbol manager. When I use one of the symbols from the iqfeed list (say SF# for swiss franc) there is hardly any data at all!

I can open up ninjatrader and look at the continuous feed contracts and see the data fine, so I don't think it's an iqfeed issue (unless I need to tell them I want a multichart compatible feed now?).

Multicharts looks way better than NT, but man! Getting frustrated with the data feed... any thoughts?

I am using @EU# for the 6E in MultiCharts which gives you the front-month future. For back-adjusted history you could use @EU#C. You could see more there: Welcome to IQFeed! - Fast, Reliable, Affordable. Datafeeds and API.

Thats what I tried, but it doesn't seem to be backfilling all of the data. Here is a 15m chart using @EU#C.
