When selecting xxx Bars Back option in Instrument settings for a chart or in PT, MC loads only appr. 3 months of data.

Steps to reproduce this issue
  1. Create Chart
  2. Select an instrument e.g. EUR.USD with 60min resolution.
  3. Select an option with "....Bars Back" from current and input a high number - e.g. 10000

  4. See data loaded and chart created

  5. Look at the beginning of the chart and see that the date is appr. 3 months ago only...regardless of the resolution chosen (60min or 240 min).

Hello Zheka,

That is expected behavior. When using “Bars Back” request on intra-day resolutions - the history will never exceed 91 days, even if you have more data in the database. The limitation is applied to avoid overloading the data providers with requests that cannot return data (infinitely going back to 1900 for ex.). In order to load the desired data range – please use the "Days Back" or "From-To" request types.
