"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum

"I started a trial a few weeks back before the market went wild. DTN.IQ didn’t miss anything and beat my other provider. I decided to stay with you because of the great service through all the volatility." - Comment from Mike
"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

I installed the IQFeed client on my Mac development box.

The login dialog pops up, but the "Connect" button is grayed out. The dialog message reads "Awaiting product ID and version" Entering login information and password does not help.

Running macOS Sierra Version 10.12
2.3Ghz Intel i7, 16G

I am able to connect on a windows box, no problem

How can I get IQFeed to work on a Mac?

Hello Gremlin123, to log into IQFeed on a Mac OSX. You will need to do so through your Charting Software. IQFeed does not have a interface so it will not connect by itself hence the grey "Connect" button.

I have the same issue, how do you actually connect to the feed? (I'm an API customer) the terminal command: "open -a IQFeed" doesn't work.


On windows the ShellExecute(); function works from code, but how do I do this on mac/linux from code?

You would need run the MAC Client in Wine to make a connection on Linux.

when I launch the MAC client the connect button is grey and not enabled and the field says "awaiting product ID and version" I can pass my product ID through my C++ app on Windows, but how do I do that with the Wine versions?

On my machine:

 
user@here:~$ wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/DTN/IQFeed/iqconnect.exe -product x1 -version x2 -login x3 -password x4 -autoconnect


Substitute your own info for x1, x2, x3, x4
