"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

if I begin a download about 21:00 o'clock (german time) with this request:
"HTT,XGU15,20150619 020000,20150917 230000,0,000000,235959,1,HTT,2500\r\n"

i got the message
"HTT,E,Invalid symbol.,\r".

Some hours before it has still functioned.
I dont understand this. Is there an explanation for that?

My apologies for the delayed response.

Our history servers will currently sometimes return an invalid symbol error message if there was no data available for the time period requested. We are working on addressing this problem.

As a workaround, you can safely ignore this error message and assume that the request simply returned zero datapoints.
