"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email

"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,

one thing that may be beneficial to sophisticated individuals with a limited budget (below NaNex prices) would be if Level1 updates and Level2 updates could come in a single sequence just as they do from CME for example. In other words the two feeds which are now 'independent' entities would come in a single sequence so that synchronization is guaranteed. For sophisticated orderflow analysis one needs to see certain events in the sequence they happened (trades interleaved with bid/ask size/orderbook updates). It is practically impossible to synchronize two independent L1 and L2 feeds even with millisecond timestamps-other than assuming neither of the feeds has any errors/omissions. Is an implementation of this feature conceivable?

I requested this 5 years ago... but I understand the separation of L1 and L2 feeds is probably important and convenient organization of the feed data.

However, can we request the messages to contain a new field, message sequence ID, that comes directly from the exchange for both L1 and L2 update messages? This would allow the client to synchronize on their end. And you must be already parsing those from say CME in your data processing anyway. You could just pass them along (as optional field) to the client.
