"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. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

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.
