Hello,
It would be nice to have a little more intraday data than just the 5 or 6 days. Would DTN consider providing 15-20 days of tick data? Thank you.

We are working on having, after market is closed, up to 30 days of tick data available.
You can try some of the data now between the hours of 4:30 P. M. and 8:30 A.M. CDT.

Just to clarify, IQFeed has been increased to 30 days of tick data. We are limiting the expanded data to requests made between the hours of 4:30pm - 9:30am ET. If you make a request for historical tick data between 9:30am and 4:30pm ET, you will only receive 8 calendar days.

Since you posted this to the DTN.IQ Client software forum, I assume you are using DTN.IQ software. In this case we are currently beta testing a new DTN.IQ client that supports the increased tick data in the T&S app. We hope to release a public beta within the next few weeks.

Hi Jay,
I use Amibroker and MultiCharts with DTN data. Would it be possible instead of having 8 calendar days to have 8 market days? That is good news about the historical tick data. Thank you.

Kindest regards,

Tim

We have chosen to use calendar days in order to simpify the storage and processing of historical data. By using Calendar days, we don't need to be concerned about holidays, weekends or different sessions between markets. It is possible that we will expand the amount of data available during the day. For example, if we increased to 10 calendar days you could expect nearly 8 market days on most issues. One reason for us choosing 8 calendar days is it should provide for a full trading week of data on any symbol.

Thank you Jay for your response. I hope the powers that be will consider increasing this to 10 trading days or 16 calendar days. Thank you again.
