Intraday vs. Daily intervals
At Twelve Data all intervals can be divided into categories the intraday and the daily data. The main difference lies in the amount of historical data available.
Daily intervals include
1month and contain data for the complete history since the first trading date for most of the symbols.
Intraday intervals include
1month and contain data on average from a couple of months to a couple of years.

To check the first available date you can use the
/earliest_timestamp endpoint. You can a dedicated article about it here.
How to get the prices
Once, you know the first available date and you want to extract the according information, you can use two methods.
Specify the number of records to be returned with the
outputsizeparameter. This is the simplest and the most efficient approach, however, the maximum value to be set is 5000.
Filter data using
end_dateparameters. This gives great flexibility in manipulating the data but has some nuances such as the correct order of using the parameters, the "sliding window" approach, and a few others.
When requesting historical data the response time might increase, therefore try to get it once and update it later with the real-time data. We strongly recommend reading this comprehensive guide to master the technique of obtaining historical data.
