    Hello I'm trying to figure out what the deal is, I'm looking back in time using trading view at the moment but the same thing happens with Sierra Chart, I can only look at a shorter (half hour) time frame upto a certain point in history, but I can look at a longer time frame (daily) and can proceed further into the past, the issue is this, I don't think the daily charts have the detail I need compared to the half hour chart, they lose important detail.

    But at the same time I need to go further into the past to backtest strategies,

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Try www.esignal.com classic delayed for $50 a month. Check how much 30 minute data they have. It is probably a lot more than tradingview.

    Ahh! so there is a name for what I need, "30 minute data".. Yes I need long continuous amounts of 30 minute data.

    Thx
     
  4. For Sierra Chart increase the number of days to load in Chart Settings.

    So you're saying I can download the data from tickstory and load it into ninjatrader?
