My charting app works perfectley fine during the day and into the the evening when requesting historical data...

But about midnight EST I lose the 2nd to last day of data...

I am using asynch sockets and the data output you see here is the data chunk returned.
I parsed out the open price and the date part for clarity..

Is it me?

days, 10
interval 15 minute

I have checked this all the way back to the Socket Async CallBack...

And the result is the same.

It is as if the day(12/07/05) doesnt exist other than the midnight print...

Hello Scott, Is this an issue that just happened the night in question or is it a reoccuring problem?

Is this something that is happening for all symbols or is there a specific symbol?

I was unable to get these same results you were today but it seems you do not have this issue during the day either. Is that correct?

Can you give an approximate time that it Stopped working?

Any other information you can provide will help us identifying the issue and hopefully prevent it in the future.

Sorry for not posting back sooner. It is did not reoccurr.

It only happened on the day of the rollover and the symbol was a wild card.

I will double check tonite...but I have not seen it since.

Notice that the missing day is the day before the roll or the Wednesday before the second Thursday...ES,NQ,YM etc

Incidentally I have noticed inconsistent behaviour using wildcard futures symbols and have since abandoned them all together.

The continuous contract (wildcard) functionality is still in BETA. We are aware of, and working to fix the issues with that functionality. Thanks!
