Bug Quotemanager and IB ?

Postby fibdax » 25 Feb 2011

Hi All,
I start everyday the quotemanager in connection with IB and Zenfire to download data. If I open a chart with zenfire datafeed I immediately see all requested data; but if I open a chart with IB feed I only see the data of current session, in the upper corner left I can read "backfill" and from the quote I see it is sending the request to IB to download historical data, why does this happen if I collected the historical data myself during the days before?
Thanks, bye

Dear fibdax,

Do you plot tick, minute or daily charts from IB and Zen-Fire? Next time, before plotting IB charts, please go to Quote Manager --> right click on the symbol name --> Edit Data and see what historical data you already have in the database for this symbol. If when you plot a chart for this symbol, you see the requests for the data that is already in the database, please come to our Live Chat Mon-Fri between 6:30AM and 2PM EST to demonstrate the issue.
