Hi,

How many days in the past can I download history data in the HIT format?

8 days during market hours, 180 days outside of market hours. However, if the interval is divisible by 60, i.e. minute data, there is no limit.

Does this also applies to HTT data? I haven't been able to get any data older than a few days, both during and off market hours.

Here is an example query that is returning "Invalid symbol."

I'll give it a go after the markets close, it will certainly be invalid currently due to the data being older than the system can currently see.

For the historical data system, is market close at 4pm EST? Or does it not allow access to the data until after-hours trading ends?

The time frame where history is limited is currently set for 9:30 to 4:30 EST

I tried this and it appears to be working, but let me know if you see something different.
