Hi moderators,

Is it possible to load ticks from contracts that have already expired? I tried to do a SymbolLookup on an expired contract but no contract object is returned. Hence I cannot RequestTicks on that contract.

We do not return expired contract by SymbolLookup request.

If you received contract after login, you can try to request ticks.
We store ticks data for expired contracts some time but cannot guarantee that all data will be available on request time.
