Forex data from IB?

  1. Hey folks,

    I've just started using Ensign with IB's data (used to pay for all my data). Cannot get any long term forex data to pop uo on my screen. No problem for Globex data, etc.

    My question is, are any of you using the IB feed with Ensign, and also getting forex history more than a month out?


  2. I use alpari's historical data for forex analysis. The ones loaded in the platform stretch for months, but on its website, you can have it from 1979 daily data on major pairs and some other pairs. And it cost me nothing.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm using IB and ensign and your right, their IDealPro data isn't backfilled very well.
    I just use the futures prices/data for my charts and trade IdealPro.
  4. I think you may have an Ensign problem not an IB problem.

    I've been using the backfill with Sierrachart and it been pretty good to date.
  5. Same as above with AmiBroker.
  6. I don't see any Sunday backfill for FX Futures. Anyone else has this problem?
  7. thanks for the info guys.

    I think I'm just going to go back to the dedicated feed. Its not very expensive anyway.
