                                                   Historical intraday data limited on chart


2013-02-06 00:03:39


I have imported historical 1 minute bar data for FX pairs using the ascii importer. I can see the data in the database editor going back to 2001 , (from the menu) Data -> Database Editor -> Choose database:Intraday

However, when I open the symbol e.g. EURUSD, on a chart, and choose 1m bars, it only goes back as far as 12/13/2012. (I'm writing this as of Feb 5th 2013)
How can I view the entire/custom range of historical 1m bar data that goes before this date?

Historical daily data goes back as far as the data is available, and it is just the intraday data that is limited back to 12/13/2012.

As an aside, when right clicking the chart, one can swap between "Historical" and "Intraday" data.
I think this is inaccurate terminology as the 2 types are not mutually exclusive and could both be "Historical" AND "intraday"
i.e. you can get historical intraday data, whereas this terminology would indicate you can only get "historical" OR "intraday" which is obviously not the case.

A better user experience would allow choosing between "historical" or "current" (where current woud show the current and previous x bars) and then giving a bar choice of "daily" or "intraday".

Thanks for taking the time to read this, I look forward to a response.

Hi Ed,

Thank you for the message.
To display more quotes on a chart, select "Accounts -> Intraday Settings" then update the "Number of days worth of intra-day data to load" field.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
