(It is IB after all) Missing Backfill Data

Postby bowlesj3 » 20 Mar 2012

UPDATE: this is an IB data problem after all.

This morning at 5am I started MC and backfill was okay. I shut it down and restarted at about 7:30 and I was missing about an hour between 5am and 6am. Once I realized it was a full hour of missing data I shut MC down, returned the database from last night and tried again. This time the missing data is from last night at 16:15 when I brought MC down until 6:28 in the morning. I decided to install the very lastest 32 bit and I get the same problem. If effects the 1 minute bars (and higher) as well as the 10 second bars. See attached 1 minute bar png.

I also tried bringing in the Friday night data file instead of Monday night and I get exactly the same thing.

I just checked. it is exactly the same on the TWS chart so it is not MC after all. It has been a long time since I have seen this problem with them.

I just called IB. He said they are working on the Missing backfill issue for ESM2. I asked if I should restore the Monday night file for backfill tomorrow and he said that is correct. Hopefully it will be restored at that point.

IB fixed the problem. Anyone missing Tuesday early morning data can now backfill from the Mon or Friday file and get it.
