"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
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

Trying to get the S&P500 stock components with below logic:

history(q,char(stocks(n)),{'01/01/2011','08/23/2013'},'Daily');

where stocks is a cell array with all 500 components.
put this in a loop, with 4 sec delay, and the history command will stop returning the total amount of days for a specific symbol.

For example:

Symbol: EXPD, Nr.of days collected:665
Symbol: EXPE, Nr.of days collected:665
Symbol: F, Nr.of days collected:1

Symbol: CVS, Nr.of days collected:665
Symbol: CVX, Nr.of days collected:1

Symbol: CBE, Nr.of days collected:665
Symbol: CBG, Nr.of days collected:14

each time the program will reach these particular symbols, the history will stop returning the proper amount of days requested.
The workaround is to close-down Matlab (IQF connection may remain open) and open it again.

Are there any troubleshooting means, any diagnostic commands that could help - for example assess if the connection to IQFeed is still operational ?

I assume I'm not the only one trying to download the components of an index from within matlab - are there any working samples available anywhere?

Thx

Hello Andrei,

Sorry to have missed this, were you able to get this worked out since this post?

Hello Mongfa,

I am sorry, but I do not have access to MatLab's API documentation so we would recommend going to them for support. All of the samples I would have to illustrate what you are doing require an IQFeed API subscription. But, what I see in the code above appears to make sense, so if you are having the same issue in your loops, I would certainly check with Matlab to see if they have an update or any advice that they could give. If there is a systematic issue with their API interface, I would think this would be a common call for them to receive if so.

Tim

Good morning,

That type of logic works within our API as well, so I do not know what the issue that you are having is. There are features within our API that would allow me to help further, all I can do is hope that MatLab has the same kind of thing within their system to help you get past this.

I am sorry I cannot be of more help here,
Tim
