"Everything is working great with the API. I love it." - Comment from Calvin
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam
"I noticed that ******* quotes locked up shortly after the interest rate announcement yesterday while yours stayed stable." - Comment from Ron in Utah
"I am keeping IQFeed, much better reliabilty than *******. I may refer a few other people in the office to switch as well." - Comment from Don
"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum
"This is an excellent value, the system is generous (allowing for 500 stocks) and stable (and really is tick-by-tick), and the support is fantastic." - Comment from Shirin via Email
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"I like you guys better than *******...much more stable and a whole lot fewer issues." - Comment from Philip

IQFeed Developer Support » Getting only 8 days of tick data after hours Apr 7, 2016 10:56 PM (Total replies: 0)

I'm completely new to this, so I hope I'm not asking a question with an obvious answer. I wasn't able to find anything in the documentation or using the search feature.

The first thing I wanted was to write the historical tick data for @ES# to disk for reference and back-testing. I simply edited the HistorySocket example program to write the data to file. It works fine unless I request more than 8 days of historical data. I'm not getting any errors or anything, it just runs for 20 minutes or so, gets 8 days of data and then !EndMessage! for the end of the signal.

I'm aware that 8 days is the limit during market hours, but it is almost midnight in NYC right now so this shouldn't be an issue. Is it timing out? Do I have to request data in 8 day chunks? I'd appreciate any help, thanks.
