"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

Is there an easy way to determine if an option traded for an underlying during the day, without actually having to download the tick or daily data for that option for the day?

ie, AAPL has A LOT of options... Not all options have a trade during the day. Right now, in order to determine what was traded, I have to download all the option symbols for AAPL, then download the tick data for those symbols to see the daily trades. Is there a better way to do this?

I guess I can try to filter out the trades by downloading the DAILY data for each option, and if there is any data, I can assume tick data is avail for that option, and then download the tick data...but I still have to look at the history of all option symbols for AAPL... which in both cases, takes a while.

It would be nice to have an API that helps with this. ie a CEO command with a date, and it will return true/false or the # of trades made for the chain returned.

Good morning,

It's a good idea, I'll let people know so we can consider adding this in the future, but, for now, I don't have something better than what you have already discussed, at least not without impacting your symbol counts. We do have some updates coming in the foreseeable future though that may help solve your issue in a slightly different way, so I will get those details out to you as we get closer to a beta release.

I agree that this is a very good idea, especially if also a minimum amount of traded money could be parametrized, i.e., get all the options that today traded more than 50000 USD.
I was wondering if you guys are still considering implementing such a feature.
Thanks for your consideration.

We are getting closer to being able to help this and I believe that the lists we will be returning will have the price and volume. So you should be able to create something to parse out the values you care about without much trouble.

We may be able to build in the filtering for you, but it would be in a subsequent release I think. We'll get it on the books for you though.

As to the time frame for the first poster, within the next month or two is probably reasonable to expect.

Thanks for the idea and your business.

Tim

Is there any update on being able to receive "Traded" Option Symbols or Last Price, Volume on the Symbol List
