IB is real-time feed. It is designed for intraday. EOD data are available but very very limited quantity. It is much better and faster to get EOD data from somewhere else.

How can multichart can do it while amibroker can't work on it? I am a fan of amibroker but very frustrated to see such a big limitation on IB data which most of our entry level users rely on it to make selection on software. Can you consider to check out why MC can and why AB cant? Thx
