I have made installers geared towards futures trades and customized for 5 different feeds (IB, DTN IQFeed, TransAct/Infinity, Zen-Fire and eSignal).  These installers can be found here.  These have the futures symbols and some charts already setup for you, and will save you a lot of setup time.  You MUST send in a signed CME Agreement before we can activate your Market Profile charts (the Profile Indicator requires MP activation).  Please click here to do so.

Interactive Brokers, TransAct/Infinity, and Zen-Fire Users
I would strongly suggest that you elect to sign up for the $15/month DTNMA option, which gives you very complete/robust downloading/backfill capability.  With DTNMA, all your requests for downloads/backfill will automatically get routed to DTNMA, which gives you more data, quicker downloads, and complete tick data (not just snapshots).  However, if you elect not to use the DTNMA, you do still have historical backfill capability from your brokerage feed (although limited).  And if you decide at some future point that brokerage feed's backfill is not sufficient for your needs, you can always upgrade to DTNMA at any time.  You can read more about DTNMA here.
