Historical fundamental datas

Hi Andrew, Sorry for the delay, I missed your answer. IB is actually offering Thomson Reuters Worldwide Fundamentals for a fee. http://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/p.php?f=marketData&ib_entity=llc Also, I guess the ability to fetch fundamental datas from free quotes would allow to build a histo...

Well, thanks for the advice...but it didn't solve the issue. I also check other parameters, such as usage of margins, expanding scale to indicators and controling the scaling type, but all parameters are set equally.

I've enclosed a partial snapshot which reflects the issue.

I am more and more enclined to think that one should have a separate platform for trading/automatic trading and for development. This also means that transparent way of transfering/securing data should exist. Having a versionning system for the development of study would be great as well, but I will...
