"This is an excellent value, the system is generous (allowing for 500 stocks) and stable (and really is tick-by-tick), and the support is fantastic." - Comment from Shirin via Email
"I am very pleased with the DTNIQ system for quotes and news." - Comment from Larry
"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
"There is no doubt that IQFeed is the best data provider. I am very satisfied with your services. And IQFeed is the only one that I would recommend to my friends. Now, most of them are using your product in China." - Comment from Zhezhe
"Version 4.0.0.2 has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.
"I am very happy I changed. I love the product, but more so I am thrilled with Tech Support. You are knowledgeable, polite, pleasant and professional." - Comment from Pat
"I like you guys better than *******...much more stable and a whole lot fewer issues." - Comment from Philip
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton
"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 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

In order to more closely align with new symbology from the TSX exchange, we will be making the following changes to Canadian equity symbols:
• Any symbol that currently ends in .U will now end in .UN
• Any symbol that currently ends in .R will now end in .RT
• Any symbol that currently ends in .US will now end in .U
• Any symbol that currently ends in .SR will now end in .R

There are currently 6 symbol collisions that can occur during this change and you might need to manually adjust any historical data you currently have saved to account for this. In each of the following cases, the current symbols are listed below and the symbol ending in .U will reference the symbol ending in .US after the change has been made.
• C.FAY.U - FIRST ASSET YIELD OPPORTUNITY
• C.FAY.US - FIRST ASSET YLD OPP TRUST
• C.GTU.U - CENTRAL GOLD-TRUST
• C.GTU.US - CENTRAL GOLD-TRUST
• C.ISL.U - ING FLOATING RATE SENIOR LOAN
• C.ISL.US - ING FLOATING RATE SENIOR LOAN
• C.OUY.U - O'LEARY U.S. STRAT YIELD ADV F
• C.OUY.US - O'LEARY US STRAT YIELD ADV FUN
• C.SBT.U - SILVER BULLION TRUST UNITS
• C.SBT.US - SILVER BULLION TRUST
• C.SIA.U - SKYLON INTL ADVANTAGE YIELD TR
• C.SIA.US - SKYLON INTL ADVANTAGE YIELD TR

We will also be taking the opportunity to correct a long-standing symbology issue with bond symbols in IQFeed that is causing inconsistencies in the symbology. This change will add a dot between the root symbol and any suffix/class identifier. For example:
Old Symbol / New Symbol
TAKA.CB / TAK.A.CB
SXNA.CB / SXN.A.CB
BRKB.17A.CB / BRK.B.17A.CB
CUSA14.CB / CUS.A14.CB
MOGA15.CB / MOG.A15.CB

Both of these changes are currently scheduled to be put into production on the weekend of July 13th.
