Cant get historical data in IB API C++

  algorithmic-trading, c++, ib-api, interactive-brokers

I’m trying to get historical data of forex contract (what doesn’t need any subscription) and get std::bad_alloc at

m_pClient->reqHistoricalData(4001, contract, queryTime, "1 M", "1 day", "TRADES", 1, 1, false, TagValueListSPtr());

Here is the whole code:

#include "stdafx.h"

#include <Execution.h>
#include <CommissionReport.h>

#include <executioncondition.h>
#include <PriceCondition.h>
#include <MarginCondition.h>
#include <PercentChangeCondition.h>

#include <CommonDefs.h>
#include <EWrapper.h>
#include <EReaderOSSignal.h>
