"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues.

Hi Tim,

When making requests for historical data, I pack my requests all in one (let's say 50 requests in the same string, separated by \n) and I send it over to IQFeed.

I then receive the 50 answers, one by one, approximately 0.5 sec apart from each other. So it takes about 20 seconds to receive the 50 answers.

Q: Is such a speed normal?

I find it rather slow compared to what we can receive with the live feed.

Q: Is there any way to speed it up?

Thanks!

Frederic
