"It’s so nice to be working with real professionals!" - Comment from Len
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"Can I get another account from you? I am tired of ******* going down so often" - Comment from George
"Thank you so much - awesome feed, awesome service!" - Comment from Greg via Email
"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"As a past ******* customer(and not a happy one), IQ Feed by DTN is a much better and cheaper product with great customer support. I have had no problems at all since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum
"If someone needs the best quality data and backfill beyond what their broker provides at a rate that is the best in the industry, I highly recommend IQFeed." - Comment from Josh via 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
"I have to tell you though that using the IQFeed API is about the easiest and cleanest I have seen for some time." - Comment from Jim

Hi,

You are currently offering "180 calendar days of tick history"

I believe that it's not enough. Why? Because custom bars are built from tick history and getting 6 months of these bars isn't enough for serious Forex backtests.

I understand that it will increase data traffic, but keep in mind that internet speed and computers CPU power are getting faster each day (+ SSDs, no more hard disks), hence I believe it's time to update your offer and consider my request to definitely beat DTN competition.

You may believe that it will incur additional ISP costs but this is wrong.
ISPs competition offers have never been so high and I'm pretty sure that your company's boss is able to negotiate this additional traffic bandwidth for free with same of higher speed...

Thanks
