Missing Historical Data

Postby datamonkey » 03 Mar 2014

I have been away for a week and have come back to load my charts but have no historical data since 21st Feb.

I'm using MC.net x64 with Rithmic feed through Amp Futures.

Have tried View > Reload > Reload all data and some other suggestions from here:

https://www.multicharts.com/trading-sof ... _on_Charts

However still no solution.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello datamonkey,

In MultiCharts please go to File tab->Preferences->Data server mode;
Make sure you are in online mode, "download missing historical data" is enabled.

Rithmic provides the following amount of historical data:
Tick-by-tick for the last trading session, minute bars 5 month back, daily bars constructed out of minute bars.

It means if your charts are using tick-based resolution then you will not be able to backfill the missing tick data from your data provider's servers.

Yes I use tick charts. Didn't realise that was the case.

Thanks for your help :)
