i would tell you my exact set up if i was back at my trading computer --- unfortunately wont be home for a few weeks --- i have pulled up gold/ES/NQ only in nt7 and all the historical data needed and connected to iB --- you might have to contact them for the other questions --- but i know i was surprised they offered the historical data --- so maybe it is just for the 3 i happened to choose ... but a good question ...
zenfires is limited back data if i remember correctly -- not sure how far back it goes --- kinetic which is a paid service might do a bit better --- but thats about all i know at the moment
Zen has no historical data. But, if you are a NinjaTrader user you can use NT's historical server, which last time I checked was keeping nearly one year of tick data, quite impressive. IQFeed has been growing their tick data as well, I believe they only advertise 30 days but I recently pulled over six months worth.

I use Kase bars using the ATR of my tick bar chart from 9:45 to 3:45 and leave out any news spikes or FOMC days. I take the low from the high and divide it by 2 and add it to the low to get my kase bar setting. I take that number and use the day before to average a new setting. I have found it don't have to be that close but I measured in millionths of inches for a living for 34 years so I like to be precise.
First off, I don't think a Kase 200 bar chart would be practical. I don't know of a symbol that may move that much.
The highest I use on the ES is 16 on TS.
As to your problem, have you tried highest high and lowest low for the time frame you had in mind. With that you should be able to compute your ATR.
