"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger
"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

Data and Content Support » Unusual Quote Delays from QGC# Oct 11, 2019 03:38 PM (Total replies: 3)

Okay cool, glad you're on it.


Data and Content Support » Unusual Quote Delays from QGC# Oct 11, 2019 12:59 PM (Total replies: 3)

To clarify, the latencies I'm seeing are around 2 seconds when this is happening. When it's not 60ms or so is normal.


Data and Content Support » Unusual Quote Delays from QGC# Oct 11, 2019 12:57 PM (Total replies: 3)

I've been noticing sporadic delays in getting live quote data from symbol QGC#. I see it for several minutes relatively sustained, and then it stops. Some days are entirely clean, some are not. I've attached a chart showing the latencies I've seen from today. This seems different to me than normal bursts of activity - the regularity makes it seem like your server handling QGC# has some unexpected loading on it. I don't see this pattern on other symbols (as far as I've looked).


Interesting, thanks again. By mapping to exchange, I mean can I go to the ICE market data spec somewhere and see a message flag that says "Implied trade"? Just wondering if it's possible for me to try to walk through exchange docs to figure these things out, or do I just need to post questions here?


Ah, interesting, thanks! Is the non-qual from spread volume ICE specific, or more general? Is there a way to map this onto ICE market data documentation?

Thanks again, that's super helpful and interesting to know!


With respect to the "Basis for Last Trade" field in tick data, what is the difference between a qualified trade (C or E) and not qualified (O)? It appears "O" is not included in interval data, but is in tick data. For CRD# at ICEEC, this happens to be a quite large amount of volume, around 75% of the volume is marked "O" and thus excluded from intervals.

Okay thanks, just wanted to be sure I wasn't just missing the option somewhere. Quotes will be nice when it comes!

Thank you!

Does that work for historical data? What you sent seems to be just for streaming real-time.



Data and Content Support » Is Historical Level 1 Tick Data Available? Jun 21, 2019 11:35 AM (Total replies: 4)

For historical tick data, I see just trades, with bid/ask included. Is level 1 data available? By that I mean bid size/ask size, and ticks whenever they change?

Oh I see...I just have to pull the data outside of regular market hours. Got it. Thanks!


Data and Content Support » Historical Tick Data Beyond 8 Days Jun 21, 2019 09:27 AM (Total replies: 2)

I'm only able to get 8 days back of tick data. I believe there should be 180?

One day later produces data as expected:

Data and Content Support » Timestamp Resolution for Tick Data Jun 20, 2019 03:39 PM (Total replies: 2)

BINGO! My mistake was I just connected and sent my command. I needed to send the "S,SET PROTOCOL,6.0" command immediately after connection. Works now!



Data and Content Support » Timestamp Resolution for Tick Data Jun 20, 2019 03:11 PM (Total replies: 2)

Is it possible to get fractions of a second timestamps for tick data? I do this:

HTT,@NQU19,20190620 000000,20190620 170500,,,,1,,

And I see:

2019-06-20 16:05:38,7766.50,1,492761,7766.50,7766.75,232575516,0,0,C,

I was under the impression timestamps went down to microseconds...
