"I used to have *******, but they are way more money for the same thing. I have had no probs with data from DTN since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"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 was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

"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.

Any ideas what is causing the problem described here?

Our best guess is that your timestamp message has the prior day's time value, but the next day's date around midnight when it is sent.

I just realized that it may not be obvious as to my conclusion being that you don't understand how we do time stamp processing. being that the trade does not contain a date but only a time, we know that the date from the timestamp last received could be off by one day. We automatically make an adjustment for that. What I would like you to do make absolutely certain that when you transmit timestamp message that the date and time values are correct and correspond to each other.

Anthony, I think this issue is caused by a bug that has plagued us for the past few months. Unfortunately, it only happens periodically enough that we haven't been able to test our fixes effectively. We have new history server code in final QA testing and it appears this problem has been fixed in this new version (which is currently scheduled for release on 3/9). The problem occurs when we receive a tick exactly at midnight. Our servers are datestamping that tick to be the next day, while the time is the previous day. It was my understanding that the tick should have been corrected yesterday afternoon on our servers however. Thus, reloading the data should have corrected it if customers clear the stored data and reload.

Again, the new servers should have this problem corrected (in addition to various enhancements such as more tick data and full exchange based tick correction).
