I am watching stocks in DTN.IQ client and seeing that the Bid/Ask size of all pink .PK stocks are showing sizes that are 100 times what they should be.

Using DTN IQ Version 2.9.0.10
Try GOFF.PK, CPNFF.PK, MLYFF.PK every symbol I have tried has the same issue.

It looks like you were Referencing the bid ask volume for the size difference.
We are scheduled to update the servers this weekend to correct that.

The sizes are still 100 times what they should be. They were 10,000 before this weekend's fix.

Example:
C.CPN versus CPNFF.PK
The Pink Sheets is showing 100 times the size. I see a bid size of 6800 when it should show 68.

Thanks for reporting the bid/ask volume issue.
We are researching it.
If you have any more examples let me know or send them to support@IQfeed.net.

While I am on the topic of Pink Sheets, is there any way to get symbols consolidated?
CPNFF Shows Last sale and trades while CPNFF.PK shows bid/ask data only with no last sale and trades. Does this make sense? CPNFF.PK should show Last and volume as well.

We are matching the bid/ask vol with other data sources. Can you give me a example of the source you are using, using the CPNFF.PK symbol?

Right now, I am looking at CPNFF it shows 1x25 coming from ACTIV's feed
On any other data provider, the .PK is not required

WE have compared the bid/ask volume's with several Data sources and a Broker. we are matching what they have for the volume. I am still trying to access the site you sent.

I understand this. The question is: Should the size displayed be shown in shares or 100's of shares? Every other exchange is displayed as 100's of shares, and you are showing shares.

That is the acual bid/ask volume data. That is the way we receive it from the Exchange without doing any calculations to it.
