"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
"I am enjoying the feed very much - so superior to the broker provided feed I was previously using." - Comment from George
"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
"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
"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
"I used to have *******, but they are way more money for the same thing. I have had no probs with data from DTN since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"IQ feed works very well, does not have all of the normal interruptions I have grown used to on *******" - Comment from Mark
"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
"If someone needs the best quality data and backfill beyond what their broker provides at a rate that is the best in the industry, I highly recommend IQFeed." - Comment from Josh via Public Forum

Hello there,

I am having trouble pulling in ticks from the Vix futures product (@VX#)

This is using both my own custom software (API), and separately, I have tried via the QCollector software

So I think this is an issue on the IQFeed side?

Please can you let me know when this is resolved

Thanks
David

David,

I am not seeing any issues on our side, so if you could provide some additional information it would be helpful. Did this issue just start today (were you previously pulling @VX# data successfully)? Are you able to access the current data for @VX# in the IQFeed Watch Quote Display App? Are all other symbols working properly (including others from the CBOE Futures Exchange)? If after restarting your connection to IQFeed you are still having issues, please let us know what server you are connected to (IP in the connection manager) as well as what specific time-series data you are requesting.

Thanks

Hi Jay,

Yes other symbols are working, and yes have tried restarting etc.

For the @VX# symbol, there seems to be no data since

2017-11-15,08:59:51,13.05,3,134617,13.00,13.05,972720,0,0

So the last daily bar coming through is

2017-11-14,11.60,12.20,11.60,12.05,145137

Can you recheck this?

Thanks,

David

Thanks for the additional information. We will take a look at this and see what is going on with the continuation symbol (#). The tick history is available if you pull the individual contract data @VXZ17.
