Hello,

I've been playing with your API the last couple of days and was hoping you could explain me what I'm doing wrong.

What I do:
HDX,AAPL,1460


What I expect:
1460 datapoints that have the same data (and yes an extra day when it has opened) whether I call it now, in a few hours or tomorrow.

What I get:
ALL data keeps on changing.
I've pasted one day (2020-05-28) below from my DB; it shows a constantly changing datetime with also a different OHLC for historical data that shouldn't change anymore?

HDX is a daily data command. It returns the last X number of days. HDX,AAPL,1460 would return the last 1,460 days, not different times within the same day.

Having said that, do you send this command multiple times within a day? What you may be collecting are partial datapoints for the current day. If you are specifying S,SET PROTOCOL 6.1 (which you should be doing, unless you have backwards compatibility reasons for doing otherwise), then the HDX command will include a partial datapoint for today. The HDX command doesn't return a time, so I'm guessing the timestamp in your DB is the time you sent the request.

Having said that, I'm not sure how you could get different results for 5-28, unless you were making these requests on 5-28.

Okay we're on the same page

> S,SET PROTOCOL 6.1
Thank you, added now :)

> The HDX command doesn't return a time, so I'm guessing the timestamp in your DB is the time you sent the request.
I made a mistake on my end, thank you!

> Having said that, I'm not sure how you could get different results for 5-28, unless you were making these requests on 5-28.
Probably me changing the datestring into an unixtimestamp has to do with this, I'm gonna try some things and await if that solves it, thank you!
