Default Yahoo limit on number of bars?

When I download Yahoo historical data myself (without using NinjaTrader) I can download as much as I want of the entire history of the instrument. Ford Motor daily prices since 1940? No problem.

Why, then, does NinjaTrader seem to limit the Yahoo history to 400 bars or so? If I want 1000 bars of data, Yahoo has it, but NT doesn't retrieve that many, regardless of how many bars I tell NT to request. Is there something I am doing wrong?

If you have more than 400 bars of historical data you can display it when pull up a new chart in the Format data series window: increase Bars Back.
