"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob
"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum

hi, I have subscribed to IQfeed and am currently using Medved Quotetracker. I am finding that Quotetracker is OK, but not great -- too many limitations. I.E, you have to have a chart window open for its "paintbar alerts" (another word for programmed strategies) to fire. This wastes a lot of CPU and screen real estate.

I am looking for a program that has the following characteristics:

  • lets me enter in a list of 20-30 stocks that I want to watch for signals

  • watch these stocks tick by tick and fire alerts based on the rules that I set up

  • have a reasonably well-developed programming language to allow for fairly complex strategies-- i.e, symbol X compared to symbol Y, comparing the same stock over various timeframes (e.g 1,3,5,30 minutes), etc etc.

  • reasonably priced (i.e, purchase outright or pay ~$30-70 month

I haven't been able to find much of anything that meets these. Closest thing I can find is Trade-Ideas.com but that is a little pricey and seems to be more of a black-box type thing where you can select from predefined strategies that they have developed and then fire alerts on the symbols you choose-- which isn't exactly what I'm after.

any ideas? cheers

Hi Luckman,

Have you looked at DTN IQ it already meets 3 of your 4 requirements.

lets me enter in a list of 20-30 stocks that I want to watch for signals

watch these stocks tick by tick and fire alerts based on the rules that I set up

reasonably priced (i.e, purchase outright or pay ~$30-70 month

And our API would fit for the 4th

have a reasonably well-developed programming language to allow for fairly complex strategies-- i.e, symbol X compared to symbol Y, comparing the same stock over various timeframes (e.g 1,3,5,30 minutes), etc etc.

You can take a look at some of the available features at www.IQFeed.net.


Thanks for using DTN

For what you are looking for, I would suggest taking a look at InvestorRT (www.linnsoft.com), Ensign Software (www.ensignsoftware.com), AmiBroker (www.amibroker.com) or NeoTicker (www.neoticker.com).
