"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

Looking into tick data feed for INTC, I see the Trade Aggressor is always 0. Is this expected ?

Karthik,

Hello, this is Gary Stephen with DTN IQFeed API Support.

The INTC data looks normal to me. Not every trade has an aggressor, but most do. Can you give me an example of a request you did where there were a large number of zeroes in that field?

By the way, make sure you are sending S,SET PROTOCOL 6.1 if you want to see the trade aggressor. All earlier protocols, including the default 4.9, don't even have the Trade Aggressor field.

Sincerely,
Gary Stephen

Actually, let me clarify the above answer.

The API will currently show 0 as the trade aggressor for all trades on equity symbols, because the equity exchanges currently do not return Trade Aggressor data. The IQFeed apps do have a "bid/ask at trade" data point, which is based on whether the bid or ask matches the price of the trade.

For exchanges that do provide trade aggressor data, this will be a 1 for the buyer, 2 for the seller, and 3 for neither.


Sincerely,
Gary Stephen
