"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
"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum
"Excellent datafeed !!!" - Comment from Arely
"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
"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
"The service is great, I see a noticeable improvement in my volume profiles over [broker]'s data feed" - Comment from Larry
"Previously I was using *******. IQFeed is WAY more economical, and for my charting needs is just as good, if not better." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I noticed that ******* quotes locked up shortly after the interest rate announcement yesterday while yours stayed stable." - Comment from Ron in Utah
"I am very pleased with the DTNIQ system for quotes and news." - Comment from Larry
"I'm satisfied with IQFeed. It's the most reliable and fastest quote feed I have ever used. Although I'm a resident in China, it's still very fast!" - Comment from Xiaofei

What is your preferred method for contract roll processing on front month contracts (continuous contracts)?

My charting softward, Ensign Windows, provides a number of choices, but it seems that the 8th of the expiration month is the popular practice

A choice to roll:

1. with volume increase
2. With increase in OI
3. Roll when BOTH OI and Volume increase
4. User defined Roll-date -- i.e. 8 days before contract expiration

Did you folks ever implement this contract roll improvement? it looks like 80% want it to roll based on volume. CQG rolls this way as well it would be great to implement this.

Hello JPM,

We have been working on this project and expect to have a new continuous contract for the grains available in 2013 - but I do not have a specific date yet. Thank you for your interest.

Todd, it would be best if you folks did this also for energy, softs and index contracts such as the e-mini S&P. It looks like you folks are focusing just on grains for this feature (based on your comment). Other platforms such as CQG roll contracts this way.

Do you know when in 2013 this feature will be available?

Hello jpm,

We already have rollover rules for the contracts that you mentioned that are designed to stay in the more active months. We mention the grains above because they still roll on expiration date in IQFeed. If you are interested, you can see the rollover dates on the Symbol Guide pages at www.iqfeed.net - they are listed with the symbols under their corresponding exchange links. Thank you.
