"Everything is working great with the API. I love it." - Comment from Calvin
"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum

"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

It would be really great if you could provide a function in your software to export historical data to ascii or excel. At the moment it seems this is only possible with 3rd party software (which have limited functionality) in this aspect.

We currently provide the ability to export historical data into a CSV files (1) symbol at a time in our DTNiQ software. We also offer an API that can be utilized to write your own custom application with the desired functionality.

We may also suggest products like QCollector which many of our customers find to be quite feature rich for exporting our data.

It isn't out of the question that we will provide the requested functionality in the IQ Feed Core product in the future, however it isn't on our near term roadmap.

Please feel free to contact our Sales department in regards to DTNiQ or our custom API at sales@iqfeed.net or (800) 475-4755. We also have a Sales chat function from our website iqfeed.net

Don't get me wrong. QCollector is a great piece of software. The issue is that QCollector doesn't allow you to define the fields in the ascii file. The fields in the header are fixed.

I want to create a futures history file that includes the expiration date of the futures contract in the continuous back-adjusted history.
