"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
"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 was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger

Have a request for future watchlists:

* Screen real estate is hard to come by...
* Watchlist cells have half of the vertical space taken up by the symbol, other half is white space.
* How about implementing a resizing capability for vertical space in the cells, similar to how
you allow for horizontal resizing? Horizontally, I can cram stuff together as much as I stand,
but can do nothing for vertical sizing.


This way, I can scrunch down the vertical real estate my watchlist cells use, while still having a
large enough font size for easy viewing of the symbols & data.

You might apply this same idea to the header row, right above the symbol/data cells, too, as
there's wasted 'gray' space on my watchlists here, too.

Thanks...

Thanks for the suggestion AMA. We will put this on the list, but DTN.IQ is primarily being developed in maintenance mode as opposed to adding new functionality and features. Instead, our client development efforts have been focused on our ProphetX platform. With ProphetX, we do have a greater focus on screen real-estate. In Quote Sheets (like a watch list in DTN.IQ), you can resize height, width and other properties not exposed in DTN.IQ. You can also run in "Caption-less Mode" and remove scroll bars and tool bars. See the attached screen shot.

I finally got around these issues by starting to use Excel/DDE as a way to watch some numbers. Excel is very flexible and can be customized in a zillion ways; much more so than Watchlists will ever be able to do...
