Errors when query historical data (twsapi)

  1. I experienced the following error when querying historical data today for HSI and ES when they were all successfully called yesterday:

    For 2009.11.24 HSI daily data:

    The historical data query all failed today. Pls help!

  2. Can you get those charts in TWS? If not then the server is probably having "issues".
     
  3. I get that occasionally when I am running on either the demo server or my paper account. It seems to happen more in the Fri/Sat/Sun time frame, so I'm wondering if they are monkeying around with the system at that time (markets closed). Haven't seen it during open markets on my live account, though.
