"I noticed that ******* quotes locked up shortly after the interest rate announcement yesterday while yours stayed stable." - Comment from Ron in Utah
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"Version has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.

"IQFeed version 4 is a real screamer compared to anything else I have seen." - Comment from Tom
"DTN feed was the only feed that consistently matched Bloomberg feed for BID/ASK data verification work these past years......DTN feed is a must for my supply & demand based trading using Cumulative Delta" - Comment from Public Forum Post
"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"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

IQFeed Developer Support » HIT: Missing data or data compression? Jul 16, 2020 04:56 PM (Total replies: 3)

Ok, I see.

So for these periods price has not changed and volume is zero.


IQFeed Developer Support » HIT: Missing data or data compression? Jul 16, 2020 04:36 PM (Total replies: 3)

I have been using the HIT command to retrieve historical 1-min (60 second) data and I have come across a scenario where the time sequence skips.

Specifically, for the ESH10 contract the retrieved 1-min data skips from ESH10 "2010-01-03 17:46:00" to "2010-01-03 17:48:00". Bypassing "2010-01-03 17:47:00".

Is this missing data? Or is this a data compression technique of some sort? Missing bar = previous bar?


IQFeed Developer Support » HTT: BeginTime and EndTime precision Jun 11, 2020 05:46 PM (Total replies: 1)

The v6.1 API docs for HTT indicate the format for [BeginDate BeginTime] and [EndDate EndTime] is CCYYMMDD HHmmSS.

Are seconds the highest level of precision available for this request? Data for this request is returned to the microsecond level of precision.

Is it possible to request data to the nearest microsecond?

If not then any suggestions on a good strategy for eliminating the inevitable duplicate data across multiple requests?
