Eddy, if you have the IQFeed Core Service, you would have access to XG# history. Minute history goes back to 1/13/2006, and daily bars go back to 11/23/1990

you would need to either use one of the IQFeed apps (included in the IQFeed Applications folder), such as the Time&Sales or Charts, or you would need to use a 3rd party software.

Note that tick history is limited to 180 days (but you can only download 8 days during US equity market hours).

eddy, also, perhaps you are not aware, but XG# is the continuous contract.

Unfortunately, the contracts are only simple merged. XG# = XG... - XGM20 - XGU20
Data of XGM20 is not back adjusted.

# is continous
#C is back-adjusted

so, for back-adjusted XG, it would be XG#C
