I have a second machine I use to study and analyze the market with, which requires me to refresh daily and intraday data after the close of the market. Sometimes I do this just after the close, sometimes (like tonight) I so this several hours after the close. I never fails that some symbols do not refresh data for intraday data. In most cases it is just 1 or 2, but tonight it is a number of them.
The following indexes WILL update today's intraday data: SPX.XO, XAU.X, NDX.X
The folowing indexes WILL NOT update today's intraday data: NYA.X, COMP.X
The following indicators WILL update today's intraday data: VINT.Z, VINA.Z, TRIN.Z, VINQ.Z
The following indicators WILL NOT update todays intraday data: NASTRIN.Z, PCRATIO.Z, NAZTICK.Z
These were examples, there were more symbols that would and would not update.
I use DTNiq feed, Ensign Charts and it is 9:51 p.m. PST. I did try closing and reopening and reconnecting data feed several times, and the issue persisted. THEN, perhaps by some unknown miricle of internet and computer technology, those symbols that would not update there intraday data DID. What is going on? This seems to happen almost every night. I know this is not my imagination, nor my computer, because I can duplicate this problem on different computers. TIA

Hello, This sounds like it could be a result of the midnight processes running a bit long. There are some processes on the server that run just after midnight (EST) that will cause some symbols to be unavailable temporarily.
Does this also happen when you are running just after close?
