"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

"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.
"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

I am seeing differences with the hourly close price when comparing historical price bars with other sources for products such as 6E, ES, NQ, CL, HO, and RB.

For example, IQFeed Charts shows that the CME QGCG20 hourly close at 2020-01-06 08:00 is 1578.8 while TWS, xtrader and the cme website shows that that hourly bar close price is 1578.7.

I am using IQFeed Version 6.1.0.20 and have tried restarting IQFeed and checking different minute time intervals.

IQ Feed uses the last tick prior to the next hour.

The CME site does not have tick data for today's data. Due to this fact we are unable to confirm what they show as the last tick prior to 0800.

The last tick prior to 0800 was 1578.8 at 07:59:59.996602

We do not have access to TWS or xtrader; however we did compare our data to CQG and we are matching.

I checked Xtrader again (after restarting) and now it shows the price 1578.8 now, matching IQFeed.

Volume on TWS shows only 15,284 while IQFeed shows 15,292, so if the bars are based on tick prices, it shows that IQFeed should have greater coverage of ticks than TWS.

Thanks.

I am sorry can you expand on your thought. I don't see a question in your last post and more of a statement.

I just wanted to comment on how IQfeed looks more reliable than the other data sources I have been using.
