I've been using the same software for several years to download historical data. Today is the first time I've seen the above error message. Can anyone explain exactly what this error means and what is wrong with my requests?

Here are some specific requests that get this error:

HIT,EHSI,60,20180701 092900,20180731 155900,,092900,155900,1
HIT,EHPTP,60,20181001 092900,20181031 155900,,092900,155900,1
HIT,EGYH,60,20181101 092900,20181131 155900,,092900,155900,1

Even Friday, this software worked fine, I only began getting these errors on Saturday 2/9. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what is wrong?

Hello, are you still having problems with this? For me, those request do not return data but they are also not returning the error you are seeing.

I am also seeing these errors on-and-off. It seems that if I enter a valid trading start date then it resumes working and gets out of the loop that constantly throws the "Invalid interval reference time" error. For example:

Original request - error:
=> 20190317 21:34:49.028 (Lookup) HIT,@KCK19,60,20190315 000001,20190317 235959,1,,,1,H-@KCK19,,s
<= 20190317 21:34:49.427 (Lookup) H-@KCK19,E,Invalid interval reference time.

Modified request - good data:
=> 20190317 21:34:57.536 (Lookup) HIT,@KCK19,60,20190312 000001,20190317 235959,1,,,1,H-@KCK19,,s
<= 20190317 21:34:57.942 (Lookup) H-@KCK19,2019-03-15 13:30:00,97.65,97.50,97.65,97.60,13763,56,0

Original request again - good data:
=> 20190317 21:35:02.040 (Lookup) HIT,@KCK19,60,20190315 000001,20190317 235959,1,,,1,H-@KCK19,,s
