"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues.

I'd rather be...

As a part of the quote stream on a symbol I'd like to see afield added that would be a news alert flag. This would save searching and parsing the news headlines for symbols in news.

One of the issues in the news headlines is that the same story is sent out several times in the day under different story ID's so it looks like new news.

One attribute of the news alert is to have a time marker on it so that if it is sent continually it would not trigger any further alerts. New news, new alert. News earlier in the day should have a day alert for news on the symbol, additional news then additional alerts.

Having an alert lets the user then check further without having the the application take time to keep all local (ie. go retrieve news / news headlines )

I have several customers that actually subscribe to other services because news alerts are very important to them - they are not satisfied with the news that is on the feed, and I think that having a news alert broadcast as a part of the quote stream would be a giant step in filling in a hole and also will bring in subscribers for this feature. Make it a special service add-on.

Thanks!

David
