"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

Quick question: does 5MS command (5 Minute Snapshot Summary) automatically retrieves data every 5 minutes? Or is the data just summarized every 5 minutes, while I'd need to resend 5MS request myself every 5 minutes if that's how often I'd like to receive it?

Thank you.

The 5MS command only returns the report once. If you want to receive it every five minutes, you'd have to re-request it each time.

The docs say:

5 Minute Snapshot Summary - Retrieves a snapshot of the current market data for all symbols in a Security Type and Exchange Group.
NOTE: The timing of the snapshot is not guaranteed, but data will be gathered every 5 minutes.

What does that mean? If I issue a 5MS command every 5 minutes at times ending :06, :11, :16, etc will I get the 1 minute old snapshot?

Thanks

Each 5MS report takes some time to build, but in my experience, 1 minute is usually enough to get you the most recent report. 2 minutes would be better. On a side note, the report takes multiple seconds to run, and it runs in alphabetical order. So ZZZ will be updated a few seconds more recently than AAA. It's not going to be super-precise about any timing. The "Last" field will tell you the most recent trade for that symbol it knows of; identifying the latest Last time will give you a good idea when the report was run.

The problem with these 5MS market summary snapshots is that they don't give you the current bid/ask. They give you the bid/ask at the time of the most recent trade which may have been hours, days or weeks ago. Right?

Can that be fixed?

Any suggestions on this? Can the current bid/ask be added to the 5MS snapshots?

Also the documentation should make it clear that the 5MS snapshots don't contain the current bid/ask since including week-old bid/ask in a 5-min snap is really counterintuitive.

The report will collect the most recent tick available, and its applicable bid/ask. The TradeDate and TradeTime fields will tell you the timestamps of the bid/ask. I don't know if there's a way to change the report's behavior, but I can ask.
