Automate Historical Data download using DTN/IQFeed or Ameritrade

  1. I'm looking for a software package that I can configure to automatically download intraday historical data on a daily basis. I currently have a Ameritrade account and IQFeed account that can both backfill historical intraday data.

    I can write some code to do this but I want to avoid unnecessary work if this has already been created.

    I would like this software to allow me to:
    1) Setup some portfolios/watchlists
    2) Automated scheduled daily download of 1 minute interval historical data for all the symbols in my portfolios/watchlists.
    3) Daily download should only retreive starting from the last date the data was pulled.

    The format in which it's saved doesn't really matter to me.

    Can anyone recommend a few software packages that do this?
