    For 1.5 wonderful months (I was told they installed better hardware in October...) I have had no more problems with IB's backfill... this week the problems started again. I receive weird data when backfilling and get holes (because of volume spikes) in my charts (as before October...).
    Anybody else experiencing this lately?

    Backfills from IB for the last two weeks have been better than ever for me.
  3. IB is a BROKER - they are not a data supplier -

    If you want consistently good data buy it and quite complaining your broker does not supply good past data.

    And yes I do use IB's data to trade with and chart. I, taking responsibility for my own self, accept their limitations and live with it.
