"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

"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.

It seems like I can't connect to both Level1 API and the NewSLookup at the same time.

I can do each one separately, but not at the same time.

Is that expected?

I would like to lookup News StoryID while I am receiving them in real time.

The IQFeed API allows connections, including to multiple ports at once, at the same time. Are both your connections coming from the same computer? If your two connections are from two different machines, and using the same LoginID, the second connection will disconnect the first one. This is a limitation of the loginID.

If you're trying to make both connections from the same computer, can you tell me more about what happens when you are disconnected? You should be able to connect to both news and data ports as you describe.
