"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"I am a hedge fund manager here. It’s funny, I have a Bloomberg terminal and a Bridge feed, but I still like having my DTN feed!" - Comment from Feras
"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'm satisfied with IQFeed. It's the most reliable and fastest quote feed I have ever used. Although I'm a resident in China, it's still very fast!" - Comment from Xiaofei
"I would just like to say that IQFeed version 4 is running very well and I am very happy with its performance. I would also like to extend a big thanks for the fast and efficient help that I always receive. My questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. Way to go!" - Comment from Josh in CO.
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat

Hi Lewcifer,

I am seeing the same invalid symbols. Checking with Market Data, and will let you know as soon as I have an answer.

Thanks,

Hi Lewcifer,

These invalid symbols are coming from the Green Exchange, which is not currently carried on IQ Feed. If you would like access to the Green Exchange data, this is available on our Prophet X platform.

Sorry for the confusion,

Sarah

Sarah - Thank you for researching this issue. I'd like to make a suggestion, to avoid future problems like this one...

When making Futures Symbol/Root Changes announcements in the locked and pinned forum thread by the same name, please cite the applicable platform as well. This will eliminate one source of customer confusion and wasted/duplicated research time.

Thank you again for your answer.

Regards,
Lew Payne

Hi Lew,

You read my mind...I already went ahead and made that suggestion, and anything that does not apply to all platforms should be notated in the future.

Thank you,

Sarah
