"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

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.

David,

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.

Thanks

This project continues to be worked on as part of a larger overall historical data initiative. We don't have a release date/timeline to share, but it is in development by our engineering teams.

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 (see below for the fields affected). 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 www.iqfeed.net 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

Please note that due to a change in schedule by the exchanges, this change is now scheduled for the weekend of October 1. Please be sure to change your symbols during the weekend of October 1 to ensure you are receiving data October 2.

Vice President, Active Trader Products



In order to improve consistency within our symbology in DTN.IQ and IQFeed, US and Canadian equity warrant symbol formats will be changing effective the weekend of September 16th. The current symbol for warrants will change from having a “+” at the end of the symbol (ie. AIG+), to now ending in “.WS” (ie. AIG.WS). For various classes of stock warrants, the class indicator will follow the “.WS” (ie. BAC.WS.A or BAC.WS.B instead of the current symbols of BAC+A or BAC+B).

If you are watching any warrants from US or Canadian markets, please be sure to change your symbols during the weekend of September 16th to continue receiving data. If you have any questions, please contact our support group at 800-779-7299, support@iqfeed.net or chat with us by visiting our website at www.iqfeed.net.

Some additional Examples of the symbol changes:
US Equity Warrants:
DYN+ --> DYN.WS
DYN+A --> DYN.WS.A
JPM+ --> JPM.WS

Canadian Equity Warrants:
C.NDM+ --> C.NDM.WS
C.NDM+A --> C.NDM.WS.A
C.NDM+B --> C.NDM.WS.B

Based on customer feedback, effective this evening we will be changing the roll rule for @GF (Feeder Cattle) contracts to roll 2 weeks prior to expiration. This will provide continuation chart data that will more closely follow volume/OI on this contract.

DTNIQ Client Software Wish List » iqconnect.exe & iqconnect_console.exe Jun 13, 2017 12:53 PM (Total replies: 10)

A cross platform version of IQFeed continues to be on the roadmap. IQFeed will continue to be a GUI based product however as the exchanges continue to tighten their fee structure around non-display applications. While there are users who would like to build non-display applications off our service, you would be required to pay thousands of dollars per month to the exchanges for the privilege. Unless the exchanges change their tune and create more trader friendly fee structures, our plan is to continue providing our display applications in order to provide service to a broader audience.

Yes we do. It is now called "Live briefs Pro Global Markets". Because we now have more global markets such as London Stocks, we upgraded our users to the global feed from MT Newswires.

Unfortunately you can't. Your data subscription has a symbol limit and we don't allow users to systematically/programatically scan the market by watching and unwatching symbols. If you need a full market feed, please take a look at our NxCore service at www.nanex.net.

IQFeed Developer Support » forex: last always == bid? Apr 16, 2017 09:02 AM (Total replies: 5)

The field "Last", or "Last Trade Price" is always equal to the bid with forex data since forex is a quote only (bid/ask) feed (doesn't report actual trades). IQFeed uses the Last field for historical data. Thus, the historical data is derived from the Bid field.

DTN.IQ Client Software Support » Error: Unauthorized user ID Apr 3, 2017 04:00 PM (Total replies: 1)

Hey Tony,

You will need the CME S&P Global Indexes (SPG1200.X) and the Dow Jones Indexes (GDOW.X) as those indexes are fee liable regardless of delay. Thus, by adding the service the data will be in real-time.
