IB backfill with Quotetracker

  1. I'm just trying Quotetracker using IB backfill. All I seem to get is 2 days worth and I thought it was supposed to be 5. Any hints?

    Also, does Quotetracker keep the data. So if once a week I did a backfill I'd keep building the database?

  2. If you did not register QT, it will show max 2 days of data. If registered, it will be 10. QT does keep the data so if you register and get 5 days, and then backfill a few days later, you will have more than 5 days on the chart. Up to 10. Registration is at:

    NOTE: Get the beta version of QT if you will be getting 5 days of data. There is a bug in the production which can cause a problem getting 5 days of data on futures contracts
