"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.
"This beats the pants off CQG, I am definitely switching to the ProphetX 3.0!" - Comment from Stephen
"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 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
"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
"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"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
"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
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"This is an excellent value, the system is generous (allowing for 500 stocks) and stable (and really is tick-by-tick), and the support is fantastic." - Comment from Shirin via Email

Hi,

It looks like IQFeed servers store intraday data in Chicago Time. Is it *always* going to be in Chicago time, or do I have to check each time I log in?

Hi Vik,

That's what I thought too - and everything worked back in the old version. But I just installed version 2.3 and everything seems to have been pushed one hour ahead. Not chicago time like I originally thought, but one hour ahead of New York. Here's a snippet of the history I received from IQFeed today (around the high of the day for reference) for @ESM4:

2004-05-13 12:55:00,1102.500000,1101.750000,1101.750000,1102.000000,456654,2153 2004-05-13 12:56:00,1102.250000,1101.750000,1102.250000,1102.000000,457572,918 2004-05-13 12:57:00,1102.500000,1101.500000,1102.000000,1101.500000,458920,1348

If you check the high of the day with the CME, you'll find that these times should correspond to 11:55-11:57 eastern time. So you guys are one hour off.

I can just build the fix into the code by subtracting an hour, but I need to know if this is intentional or not. I don't want you to fix this and then have my charts suddenly be one hour too early...

Earik,

We are looking into this. The times should not have changed. We have 2 reports on this already, but aren't able to duplicate this internally. Don't make any changes to your code to subtract the hour at this point. We will have more info for your shortly.
