    Need data

    Said with a raspy, dying of thirst voice:
    1 year ain't enough. I am trying to back test and optimize a strat and I opened a chart to load a few years of data to test against only to find it (at best) brings back a years worth. Sometimes it's only 8 months. I can't get nt8 data from 3rd parties. NT8 has been in beta for (I think) approaching 2 years so (I would assume) that on day one of beta one you had data going back at least a year. That would suggest there should be data for approximately 3 years now. Any reason it's not exposed?
    What's even more peculiar, is for the instruments I've been testing since day one (ES, CL), I have data going back to 10/27/2013. But if I try any "new" instrument, I only get a years worth at most.
    At this point I'm afraid to refresh my ES and CL data for fear of losing it.
    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks .. Ed

    Hello edstaffin,

    What connection provider are you connected to? What instrument(s) are you trying to access historical data for?

    The historical data available from the NinjaTrader servers is as follows. Some instruments may have more data than others:
    • Tick data: deleted after 366 days
    • Minute data: virtually never deleted, goes back to 2006
    • Daily data: virtually never deleted, goes back to 2009
    • Market replay data: deleted after 366 days


    If you want data beyond these dates you will need a provider which supplies more historical data.

      That explains a lot!
      Hmmm, I'll have to take a closer look at minute data for my back testing.
      I was looking for range data (tick) for 6e, nq and YM.
      Thanks ... Ed
