"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.

This notification is to explain any unusual behavior you may have observed in the symbols QCL#, QNG#, QHO# and QRB# earlier this week.

In response to feedback from customers who felt these contracts were rolling over too late, DTN made a decision to change the rollover rules for these symbols from 3 days to 8 days. This change took effect Sunday night, Dec.8th.

However, after additional customer feedback and discussion, we reconsidered this change. The rollback rules were changed from 8 days to 4 days on Monday, Dec. 9th, and then back to the original 3 days on Tuesday, Dec. 10th. They will remain at 3 days going forward.

QNG# was most affected, as that contract actually rolled during this time. This resulted in the continuous symbol showing the February contract for a few hours on Monday morning, and reverting to January.

If you store historical data for QNG# in a database, you may want to re-download any data for December 9, 2019. This data will be correct going forward.

Our standard notification protocol was missed, and we sincerely apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused. Our procedure is to post any updates/new releases to our forums in advance. This allows our customers the opportunity to provide feedback and make any updates on their end. At DTN, our mission is to delight our customers, we apologize we fell short of that target.
