IQFeed Developer Support » WAL Earnings. Oct 19, 2018 03:57 PM (Total replies: 7)

Benzinga Pro is a service in which we absorb the costs for our customers, so it isn't something you subscribe to. I can't address the reason why they wouldn't have reported on WAL earnings, but this is why we provide multiple sources (in our Core service as well as through premiums). While no single source has 100% coverage of all market news, with our aggregation the overall news feed we provide is quite comprehensive.

IQFeed Developer Support » WAL Earnings. Oct 19, 2018 03:29 PM (Total replies: 7)

Some sources are part of our basic/core service, while others are premiums. In any case, each sources is received independently with their own tagging that we process. In the case of Benzinga Pro and Live Briefs Pro Global Newswires, we receive categories that we process to allow our news application to display within alerts/filters. doesn't have these categories being processed and thus there is no way for our news application to categorize them as Earnings stories.

At the same time, each source may or may not carry a story on a particular company (the reason we carry a multitude of sources to give the most comprehensive feed).

In the case of the earnings coverage for WAL, there were 5 stories processed yesterday that were tagged with the symbol WAL. The first was the early morning Earnings schedule from Benzinga Pro, then it appears that flyonthewall led the way by reporting the earnings first, followed by Businesswire, Live Briefs Pro and RTT news.

It doesn't appear Benzinga Pro sent a story reporting the earnings for WAL. This would be the reason you aren't seeing any WAL earnings reports tagged as BZEarnings.

Let us know if this doesn't help clarify.

Benzinga Pro sourced stories (BEN) will come through in real time also as they are part of the IQFeed basic service.

Craig, the BZEarnings symbol/flag is for the Benzinga Pro news feed only. This is similar to the symbol/flag EARN.MN which would come through from MT Global Newswires (Live Briefs Pro Global News). Each news source has their own tagging schemes. In the case of (FLY), we aren't processing categories that would allow us to tag it for use in the filters. Please reach out to sales and they can setup a trial of Live Briefs Pro Global News to see if that helps identify more earnings stories. You can then create a new filter/alert that includes both BZEarnings and EARN.MN.

In order to fully utilize the IQFeed API, you will need to add the API subscription. This provides you with full documentation, direct support as well as access to pre-release software to ensure any changes we make with future updates won't leave you (or your trading) in the dark. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our sales group and they would be happy to get you setup. Please also note that the fee for the API service changed to $384/year effective January 2018.

Sorry for the frustration. The issue is due to you having 2 different past API accounts. I have modified our systems and you should now be able to login to the developer area. Please let me know if you are still having issues.

No problem at all. Just visit anytime and under "Support" you will find the link to the Account Management Portal. Of course, you can also chat with support and they can verify for you if that is easier. We are here to help!

1) The extended fundamental data service is for current information that shows up in the fundamental data fields in the feed - primarily Dividend information that the exchanges are now charging separate fees for.

2) We don't currently have fundamental data stored in a historical format that would be available to pull. This is in our roadmap, but is likely a ways out as we work on higher priority items.

3) If you go into your Profile in the forums you can subscribe to the topics you wish, including product announcements. However, be sure to also follow us on Twitter and make sure we have your current email address by logging into the Account Management portal and verifying. We normally send emails for anything that will impact price, but all of these channels are good to have to ensure you are getting the most out of your IQFeed service.

The Nasdaq exchange has recently determined that users receiving Nasdaq Level II data via DTN NxCore and DTN.IQ are required to register as MDS (Managed Data Solution) users.

Professional users will need to complete and submit the “System Application - Managed Data Solution” to Nasdaq before March 1, 2018 in order to continue receiving Nasdaq Level II data. Please contact Nasdaq at with questions regarding the “System Application – Managed Data Solution” agreement.

For Professional users, the exchange fee Nasdaq charges for Level II data will increase from $80/month to $375/month which will be reflected on your billing effective March 1, 2018.

For non-Professional users, the exchange fee Nasdaq charges for Level II data will increase from $19/month to $60/month which will be reflected on your billing effective March 1, 2018.

If you currently receive Nasdaq Level II data and wish to remove it or make any changes to your DTN service, please contact us at 800-487-0474 prior to March 1. We value your business and look forward to continuing to provide you the highest quality and most economical market data services. Please note that these changes are being made by the Nasdaq exchange and in no way change the level of service or fees being charged by DTN.

We work hard behind the scenes to maintain an efficient operation so we can provide you the highest value in market data. With that in mind, on January 1, 2018 we will be implementing a nominal price increase for the core services of IQFeed, which will now be $82/month; DTN.IQ, which will be $130/month; and the IQFeed API, which will be $384/year.

Thanks for the additional information. We will take a look at this and see what is going on with the continuation symbol (#). The tick history is available if you pull the individual contract data @VXZ17.

IQFeed Developer Support » Issue with @VX# data retrieval Nov 18, 2017 01:54 PM (Total replies: 5)


I am not seeing any issues on our side, so if you could provide some additional information it would be helpful. Did this issue just start today (were you previously pulling @VX# data successfully)? Are you able to access the current data for @VX# in the IQFeed Watch Quote Display App? Are all other symbols working properly (including others from the CBOE Futures Exchange)? If after restarting your connection to IQFeed you are still having issues, please let us know what server you are connected to (IP in the connection manager) as well as what specific time-series data you are requesting.

Hi Bob,

We do still have this on our product roadmap but it hasn't managed to bubble to the top due to other higher priority work we have underway. We should have more clarity on a timeline for this in early 2018.

Thanks for your patience!

As you know, the DTN.IQ/IQFeed Core service includes the most comprehensive data available at an unmatched price. In addition to exchange data, our service includes streaming real-time news, over 40,000 DTN calculated market breadth/statistical indicators and 1-minute historical bars going back more than 10 years. As a value-add, we also include dozens of fundamental data fields that provide insight into a stock's corporate actions, trading metrics, and value.

We recently received notice from both the Nasdaq and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that they have implemented new fees for the receipt of certain fundamental data fields that are currently included in the DTN.IQ/IQFeed Core service. Because most of our customers find these fields critical to their trade analysis, and to avoid any disruption in the receipt of these fields, we have added a new premium service called “Extended Fundamental Data” to the account of DTN.IQ/IQFeed users. This new add-on service is priced at $5 per month starting October 1, 2017. If you don't require access to these fields you may login to the Account Management Portal at and remove the Extended Fundamental Data service from your account at any time prior to October 1 to avoid the $5 fee and stop receiving these fundamental data fields.

Fundamental Data Fields moving to the new Extended Fundamental Data premium service:

  • Dividend Yield

  • Dividend Amount

  • Dividend Rate

  • Dividend Pay Date

  • Ex-Dividend Date

  • Short Interest - No longer Available
