  1. anyone else??
  2. IB's backfill is hit-or-miss at best anyway.

    Today wasn't any worse than any other day.
  3. been worse for me, usually works ok, if slow

    now hanging altogether
  4. It is the Globex contracts that won't backfill properly. ES, NQ, EMD, GE and 6E all have problems.

    YM, ZN and TF backfill fine and cash indices backfill fine.

    IB please fix your backfill server for Globex contracts.
  5. vita


    Experiencing the same problem. ECBOT backfill (YM/ZB) better. Globex backfill (NQ/ES) is a hit or miss even after market closes. The time interval of 10sec in the historical data queries adds to the frustration.
  6. yep, same prob here.
  7. just21


    I imagine every customer is logged on asking for backfill. Time for a server upgrade.
  8. i think you're right, its globex only

  9. Hadn't had a problem the last couple of days. Today I can't get any backfill. Anybody else or is it just my connection?
  10. The Globex contracts backfill still doesn't work right. Non-Globex backfill works fine.
