So where's this extended backfill that was due "mid-next week" by IB ??

  1. I know, I know ... nag, nag, nag ....


    I saw a post by IB Soft that IB was going to release a TWS/API version on extended futures backfill.


    Well ?


    IB Soft, if IB can give that 10-day(hopefully 1 minute or Tick) backfill for futures ... I'll carve a marble statue in your likeness, and hang it on the roof top of the CME LOL


    Perhaps a package for a "modest fee" would help ?


    Anyway, it's about that time, "mid-next week".


    I know this is classic hen pecking, but the squeaky wheel gets the oil.

  2. First of all, I believe it will only be a 5-day backfill.

    And second, do not inspire them to charge for it! Yikes!... :eek:
