Hello,

I'm using the HIT API (historical IntraDay data), and it doesn't seem to have much more than a few days of data for Futures contracts.

Am I doing something wrong? Is this the correct API for historical, intra-day data? Example:

sout.write("HIT," + symbol + ",1," + "20170101 075000," + ",,,093000,160000," + "1\r\n");

Good morning,

You are doing a one second request which is based off of tick data. During market hours, tick data is limited to 8 calendar days. If you change your interval to 60, or any whole minute interval, then you can access the full history.

Thanks, this makes sense. So my last question on this topic:

If I change my interval to 60 seconds , the data that is returned will be for each second of data within those 60 seconds? Or will it be some average over the 60 seconds?

It will be the OHLC composite of every Regular and Extended trade for the related minute.
