    FXCM Hitorical

    Hi, I'm trying to do historical backtesting with FXCM provider using 15 minute bars on GBP/USD. For some reason, I the dates 9/15/13-4/9/14 works fine, but anything before 9/1/13 does not seem to work correctly.

    Is there some limit to the amount of historical data that Ninjatrader can load from FXCM?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    If you open a $GBPUSD chart are you able to load data for 9/1/2013? If not can you tell me if you are using FXCM or NinjaTrader for historical data. You can check this setting by going to Tools-->Account Connections-->Select your connection-->Change-->Next.

      Yes, the chart seems to work just fine!

      I'm using Ninjatrader servers for historical data, but when I switch to use FXCM, I seem to have the same issue.

        To clarify when using NinjaTrader servers are you able to backtest successfully.

        If not can you clarify the issue you are experiencing.

          No, I cannot backtest anything before 9/15/13 in any scenario.

            Actually, I take that back.... If I run 1/1/13-4/4/14, I will get action from 1/1/3-9/15/13 (approximately), then nothing after 9/15/13.

            If I run 9/15/13-4/4/14, I get action the entire time.

            It seems that there is a limit to the amount of data loaded or something?

              If you run the backtest on the SampleMACrossOver strategy do you experience the same behavior?
