"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed.

Hi. We have a new project that requires submitting trades 15 minutes before a market closes. Is there anything in the API that would tell me the closing time of the market? I know that I can get these times from the exchange's website and hard-code it into the program. But, let's say today is a special day and the markets will close at noon. Is there anything in the API that would tell me that?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Unfortunately there is not any way currently in the feed to do this. This is something we are looking into but of course that won't help with your immediate project.

Hi Steve.

That's what I thought and that's what we've planned for. But, sometimes there's something wonderful out there that you don't know about unless you ask the dumb questions.

Thanks for the confirmation.

One way we have used previoulsy to estimate the market hours is to request 30minute interval data - and use the start&end bars for a give day as a guide.
