"I noticed that ******* quotes locked up shortly after the interest rate announcement yesterday while yours stayed stable." - Comment from Ron in Utah
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"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.

"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"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

if I begin a download about 21:00 o'clock (german time) with this request:
"HTT,XGU15,20150619 020000,20150917 230000,0,000000,235959,1,HTT,2500\r\n"

i got the message
"HTT,E,Invalid symbol.,\r".

Some hours before it has still functioned.
I dont understand this. Is there an explanation for that?

My apologies for the delayed response.

Our history servers will currently sometimes return an invalid symbol error message if there was no data available for the time period requested. We are working on addressing this problem.

As a workaround, you can safely ignore this error message and assume that the request simply returned zero datapoints.
