I would like to know if I could extract expired data for MCX future contracts.
I went through the documentation but not clear about the following phrase
"This is where continuous API comes in which works for NFO and MCX futures contracts. Given a live contract's instrument_token, the API will return day candle records for the same instrument's expired contracts. For instance, assuming the current month is January and you pass NIFTYJAN18FUT's instrument_token along with continuous=1, you can fetch day candles for December, November ... contracts by simply changing the from and to dates."
Eg: can I get crude oil future data for Jan2017 data by using the current instrument token of (CRUDEOILAUGFUT) using continuous=1 and start date as 1/1/2017 and end as 1/1/2019?
