Description
Problem:
When setting "Bars back" in an instrument settings, MC will make requests to the broker API until it obtains X bars, even if bars for certain periods are skipped.
E.g. requesting 24 60min bars (back) should cover a period of 1 day (with a 24 hr session)
But currently, if some bars are missed (problem with broker API, no quotes, bars filtered out), MC will continue to request data until it obtains 24 bars, which can e.g. cover a period of 2 days.
Some gaps are harmless, and some are not.
A user is not alerted to "missed" bars.

Suggestion:
introduce a new "Intervals back" option that will ensure that backfill requests to broker API only cover the intended total period of time

This should work both with intraday and daily resolutions, both in MC and PT.
