is there a limit with the SC historical data service as to the number of symbols one is allowed to update per day?
I recieved the following message log today:
HD Request # 5 - Error downloading historical Daily data for AA. Not downloading any data. Maximum downloads exceeded for the day. Limit: 700 | 2014-04-04 18:20:40

Yes there is. Package 5 has a limit of 1500 symbols. It will reset upon the start of a new day.

If you need unlimited, you can use the Sierra Chart Real-time and Historical Data Feed:

When your account is activated for this data feed, the limitation is removed and you can still use the "SC Historical Data" service.
