New IQFeed Forum » FLT Symbol Change to CPY is wrong Mar 27, 2024 09:21 AM (Total replies: 2)

New IQFeed Forum » FLT Symbol Change to CPY is wrong Mar 27, 2024 08:09 AM (Total replies: 2)

We will investigate and I will post a follow-up here.

ADDED: According to https://investor.corpay.com/ the symbol is CPAY, not CPY. It looks like it's currently in IQFeed as both symbols; CPAY is the correct symbol but doesn't include the history from when it was FLT. I have asked that we merge/correct them into CPAY.

New IQFeed Forum » iqconnect Out of Memory Feb 23, 2024 04:29 PM (Total replies: 3)

It is always advisable to keep the number of connection to a minimum, and keep them open rather than frequently closing/reopening. IQFeed will allow you to collect to make multiple connections to the same socket from the same machine, and this has its uses. (Making 2/4 connections, and dividing the workload among them, can help overall speed in handling a large number of symbols.) But having a very large number of connections, or frequently disconnecting and reconnecting, are counterproductive and may contribute to this kind of situation happening.

IQFeed API Questions » Wrong date format in L2 update message Feb 21, 2024 09:43 AM (Total replies: 3)

Are you running the latest version of the IQFeed client software? As far as we know, this kind of behavior should no longer be happening in the current version (6.2.0.25). You can get it from https://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api.cfm.

Yes, the update notes will include a detailed explanation of what was improved.

OK, thanks for checking on it. I'm not sure what happened but sometimes these little errors get corrected on their own.

We're not currently seeing any inconsistency between 1-, 5-, 15-, and 30-minute bars for ABNB. Is there anything more you can tell me about the problem?

Data Questions » SPX Options Quotes missing in PM Feb 12, 2024 08:43 AM (Total replies: 6)

Do you know which specific SPX option symbol(s) it was?

Sincerely,
Gary Stephen
DTN IQFeed Implementation Support Specialist



I've never heard of "c" not appearing, except maybe for commodities that have a Settle price but technically no Close price. In that case it would be "s" not "c". What symbol are you trying to view?

The "closing prints" trade condition seems to be what you're looking for according to various online resources, but going to the trouble of monitoring Trade Conditions shouldn't be necessary.

I apologize for missing your message - my notifications were set up wrong, so I didn't know your message was waiting. In a word, yes, it's just WPL,symbol,2. We're also addressing an issue that will improve the working of price levels in general.

ADDED: I should clarify that options may not have price levels available, just order levels. See https://www.iqfeed.net/dev/upgrade.cfm?protocol=2 for a breakdown.

The strange option strike prices are correct. There was a special cash dividend on 12/27 which resulted in strikes being adjusted. See https://infomemo.theocc.com/infomemos?number=53848
