Default historical ES data

Hi guys

How far back do you store ES historical data on the NT server, I seem to be able to download minute data way back into 2008 if I use historical data manager but if I try and request more than 300 days worth of data on my chart it bombs out with an error message about the globex server couldn't respond etc.

Hello Ross,

Unfortunately I do not have such information listed on my end. Am I correct you are using NinjaTrader 7?

I tested it on my end by creating charts that request years of historical data.

When I used a minute interval, it loaded data starting at 1/5/2006.

A daily interval loaded data starting at 3/30/2009.
