"I had always used ******* but for the past 2 weeks have been trying DTN IQFeed. Customer support has been extraordinary. They call just to make sure your problem hasn't recurred." - Comment from Public Forum
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to interpret news headlines from iq feed with matlab. Below are some examples from AAPL which I just pulled.

I would like to know what the 3 letters are the start of the string correspond to. Quickly scanning the AAPL items I've noticed the codes, CPR, RTC, RTB, CBW. What do they mean and where can I get more information on them?

'N,CPR,21538147367,:AAPL::OCR::TRV::EOG:,20140605070145,Equities Marking a New High -- Research on Apple, Omnicare, Travelers Cos, and '

'N,CPR,21537839723,:NXTD::GOOG::EBAY::TWTR::AAPL::V:,20140604083151,The Mobile Payment Revolution - Smartphone Apps From Square to Wocket(tm) ; How '

'N,CPR,21537526814,:AAPL::BIIB::TSLA::XONE::R:,20140603093147,Critical Alerts For Tesla, Apple, Ryder System, ExOne, and Biogen Idec Released '

'N,RTC,21537507805,:AAPL:,20140603080956,Apple Unveils IOS 8, OSX Yosemite'

'N,CBW,21535989635,:AAPL:,20140528163022,Apple to Acquire Beats Music & Beats Electronics'

The 3 letter codes are news sources, but I am not sure if Matlab exposes their descriptions to you within their API. The request you want to make is what we call a news configuration request, but I would suggest asking Matlab for the details regarding how this works within their API.

In case anyone else has the same issue: I believe that the news configuration information is not available via Matlab's Trading Toolbox.

If you are using the IQML (IQFeed-Matlab) connector instead of Trading Toolbox, you can query the news configuration as follows:
Quote:
>> data = IQML('news', 'DataType','config')
data =
Category: 'All News'
Majors: [1×7 struct]

>> {data.Majors.Source}
ans =
1×7 cell array
{'DTN'} {'CPR'} {'CBW'} {'RTT'} {'CPZ'} {'CIW'} {'BEN'}

>> {data.Majors.Description}
ans =
1×7 cell array
{'DTN News'} {'PR Newswire'} {'Business Wire'} {'Real-Time Trader'} {'GlobeNewswire Inc'} {'Marketwire'} {'Benzinga Pro'}

You can also drill-down for details about news sources:
Quote:
>> data.Majors(1)
ans =
Source: 'DTN'
Description: 'DTN News'
AuthenticationCode: '1D'
IconID: 10
Minors: [1×4 struct]

>> data.Majors(1).Minors(1)
ans =
Source: 'DT5'
Description: 'Treasuries, Most Actives, Gainers, Losers'
AuthenticationCode: '1D'

>> data.Majors(1).Minors(2)
ans =
Source: 'RTL'
Description: 'Derivatives - Selected Futures and Options'
AuthenticationCode: '2Ab'
IconID: 10
