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.

Thanks
Ross

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.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
