BlueCollarDayTrading Posted May 22, 2020 Report Share Posted May 22, 2020 I have 2 watchlist each with just under 500 symbols. S&P 500, and another with stocks not in the S&P 500 that I like to watch. Both of these are fed from TD Ameritrade for a total of 948 as it shows on Sources. I have the boxes checked to automatically backfill intraday and historic charts. Each morning when I load up MT I connect it to TDA and IB TWS for futures trading and stock trading. I use TDA as feed and backfill for stocks watchlist. At 8am when I turn load MT I push the backfill button on the SP500 and it goes for about 10 seconds then stops (using TDA as backfill). Then I push the button for backfill on the other watchlist and it goes for about 5 seconds. I see this from watching the Sources window on MY Dashboard window. Also if I send a symbol to trade with Ctrl+T it will not backfill I waited for 1 minute and then I have to right click and Backfill. I was leaving my PC on 24/7 to fix this as I tried to figure out if it was something on my end. Today I have come to the conclusion it is a bug. If not then I have no idea how to get it to backfill work properly anymore. This was not an issue previously with MT. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
