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.

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. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
