This post is to announce the release of QCollector For DTN for beta testing.

QCollector For DTN lets IQFeed subscribers download data for stocks, futures, options and indexes and save the data to files on their computer. The downloaded data can then be used in other trading programs for technical analysis, charting and scanning, or running and testing trading systems. No need to subscribe to additional data services for historical data.

You can download a free copy of QCollector For DTN from the Tradeworks Software web site at http://www.mechtrading.com/qcollector/dtn/download.htm

QCollector For DTN Features

  • Download intra-day or end-of-day data; select monthly, weekly, daily, intraday minutes or time and sales.

  • Download and save historical data for any symbol including Forex.

  • Save your data in ASCII text format or in the popular MetaStock data format for compatibility with many other trading programs.

  • Create portfolios of securities to simplify file management tasks.

  • Import lists of symbols into your QCollector portfolios.

  • Run timed updates during the trading session to keep your data files updated with the latest real-time data from IQFeed. Set the timed update frequency to run as often as every five seconds on hundreds of symbols.

  • Run a regular download at any time of day or night. All data files are updated using the most recent data available.

  • Schedule tasks to have QCollector automatically bring all your data files up to date.
    Create tasks to update individual portfolios, start timed udpates, and more.

  • Many more features, including data export, conversion to MetaStock format, and more.

I am interested strictly in after-market download of some stock an option trade data (including bid and ask). I found the IQ feed/QCollector combo but am slightly discouraged by the $50 price tag.

I’d be paying the same as someone who’s logged into the live feed 5 days a week. The on-site calculator gives a $50 price with the QCollector software.

I played around with the calculator and so far only found the Quotetracker price at $20 to be a lower price.

I don’t know if the Quotetracker package perhaps also enables downloading data using QCollector? (just the 8 day time&sales would suffice for me).

Of course, at least in my opinion, access to the RT feed could be disabled in a package suited only for after market download with QCollector.

Do I have a point? Perhaps I’m missing something. Appreciate any comments.

Hello,

The Quotetracker $20 package actually does not provide the same data as the $50 package. It will only backfill two days worth of intraday data.

I do not believe there is an active product currently that has the scaled down functionality you are asking for.

If you would like to discuss what the feed offers or what other products are out there, please contact sales at 800-475-4755.

Hi Tim, thanks for the quick reply.

In fact 2 days would be sufficient in my case. What’s important is that the downloaded data contains all trades PLUS bid and ask at time of trade. No bulk, only specific symbols on request.

Can I use the Quotetracker pack for that?
If so, how would I establish the download? Using:

-Quotetracker?
-QCollector?
-No additional software necessary?

Thanks for helping me out.

All that is required to view our feed is IQFeed 4.1.2.0 available at ftp://www.dtniq.com/iqfeed/iqfeed_client_4_1_2_0.exe and the quotetracker software. Just so you are not suprised later, please be aware that in order to receive bid and ask data you will need real time data, which means you will be responsible for the given exchange fees.


You can sign up for a free trial via the https://www.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?displayaction=start or call the afore mentioned sales number and we will get you setup immediately.

OK Tim, I’ll sign up for the trial and figure it out.

Just one more Q if I may:

When the website says that the service contains:


8 calendar days of tick (every trade) and 120 calendar days interval (1 minute or larger intervals) history retrieval for charting and time & sales data


then do these “8 calendar days of tick (every trade)” contain bid and ask at time of trade?? In other words: are bid and ask (at trade) STORED?

Or, in order to retrieve bid/ask I would have to be logged on RT and STORE these bid/ask data myself? (If so, that obviously would make no sense for me because I don’t know real-time in which symbols I’ll be interested.)

Again, I’ll give it a try but this can shortcut our efforts. Thanks.
