MultiCharts and IQfeed alignment with 120 days of Tick Data???

For all you backtesters and strategy developers, I'm currently toying with the idea of an automated system. I've downloaded MultiCharts for a number of reasons, but I'm having trouble aligning my IQfeed to capture the published 120 days of tick data... Any feedback that you might have would be awesome.

Thanks in advance,
-Ben

Still new at this...

Well, this might seem very obvious to veteran MultiCharts power-users, but being new to MultiCharts I'm having trouble simply downloading 120 days of data. Where is even the best place to start to retreive tick data to load in your charts? Do you download from IQfeed, or does this get pulled from MultiCharts? Sorry for the lack of clarification, still learning. Very different from Ninja...

Thanks,
-Ben

Yes it is quite different.

You need to be in QuoteManager to setup your instrument.

Let's take CL for instance.

1. Load QuoteManager.
2. Tools - Data Sources.
3. IQFeed - click 'settings' and enter your IQfeed login/password, and make sure it says Status: Active.
4. Then Instrument - Add Symbol - From Data Source - IQFeed.
5. In the Futures tab, type CL and make sure search option is Symbol. Hit lookup.
6. Easiest is the continuous contract, CL# (not +CL#, scroll down a bit). Add it. Close window.
7. Once it's added it will show up under Futures - NYMEX.

Now you move to charting. You could close QuoteManager if you want.

8. File - New Chart in MultiCharts.
9. Instrument tab, choose Data Source: IQFeed, and on bottom you'll see several tabs for 'all' and 'futures' etc. Click futures, then find CL#. Click once.
10. Settings tab, if you want a 6 range chart go to "Regular" then resolution "6" and "point" (point=range).
11. Under data range, change to 120 days back.

Done.

Thanks!

Mike,

As always, thanks for the feedback and prompt response. I look forward to using the platform. Very very powerful at first glance. It's like getting into a Ferrari and trying to drive for the first time. I'll let you know how this goes, but should be good to go. Looks like I followed all the right steps, and it is still "getting" the data.

All the best.

Thanks again,
-Ben

Good, hope you like the platform. It took me about two months before I really got to know it. I had been living in NT for a long, long, long time and it was a big change. But I love it, hopefully you will too.

30 Days worth of Data

Set to 120 Days back, but Chart is still only 30 days back. Using a (20 Point Bar). Ugh.

Thoughts?

I didn't actually know they were doing 120 days now. Maybe it isn't available on all instruments yet? I have emailed Jay @ IQFeed for you and will post back his reply.
