When I send the following command to my local socket (, I'm only getting maybe a week's -worth of ticks:


Specifically, when I ran this a few minutes ago, the first day I got back was August 20. On the front page of the "developers" section of the website under the "What's New" section, there's a bullet that says:

Tick history expanded from 8 calendar days to 30 calendar days (10/10/08)

Are there some exceptions to that bullet, or is there something else wrong w/ my data request, etc?

30 days is only available outside regular market hours. Otherwise it is still limited to the 8 days.

Obviously, in the specific request that I posted, I'm only requesting 15 days. But regardless of whether it's 15 or 30, I still only get what looks like the past 8 days.

Ok, thanks. And what are we considering regular market hours? 9:30am - 4pm EST?
