"I've never had DTN go out on me since switching. ******* would go down a couple times every month when I was using them." - Comment from Bryce in AL.
"Everything is working great with the API. I love it." - Comment from Calvin
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob
"Very impressed with the quality of your feed - ******* is a real donkey in comparison." - Comment from A.C. via Email
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"I noticed that ******* quotes locked up shortly after the interest rate announcement yesterday while yours stayed stable." - Comment from Ron in Utah
"I just wanted to let u know that your data feed/service is by far the best!!! Your unfiltered tick data is excellent for reading order flow and none of your competitors delivers this quality of data!" - Comment from Peter via Email
"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
"Its working FABULOUSLY for me!! Holy cow...there has been so much I've been missing lately, and with this feed and Linnsoft software...I'm in the game now." - Comment from Chris R.

I'm curious what guided the man who designed this API in such a weird, ridiculous and just a bad way.
Why do you deliver it as some strange .exe file?
Don't you realize that Windows is not even the default system for a Software Developer?
When the API for Linux will be released?

Marcin,

IQFeed has always been developed as a Windows program. The app IQConnect.exe is what makes the connection to the API servers. The only thing you have to do is launch it with some parameters to make the connection with the IQFeed servers.

IQFeed does have a number of Linux users, and there is a long-term plan to implement IQFeed for it, though there is currently no ETA. So, in the meantime, you’ll have to use Wine or a comparable solution to run IQConnect.exe in Linux. I can help with this.

Sincerely,
Gary Stephen

Hahaha. So true

Preach!

Are there documentation anywhere for me to write my own client? If you provide me the details, I will write a cross platform client, and share it for free/open-source to everyone.

Hyperbaboon,

what do you mean by cross platform client?

Thanks,
Mathieu
