    i will try it again.. but it didnt work the first time so i gave up :mad: i was thinking it was on issue on IB's end??
  3. most of the time its a simple configuration issue either in QT or TWS. go through the steps on the setup help page, and if it still is not working for you, email support@quotetracker.com and we will help get you going.

    For QT, make sure you have:
    3.6.4H version of QT (http://www.quotetracker.com/beta)
    849 or higher version of TWS, preferably 851.6

    In QT you should be able to select IB as the backfill source and check the box to auto backfill when chart is opened on OPTIONS/Data Sources menu, Backfill tab.

    After that, when you open the chart, it will backfill in a few seconds if needed
