"I've never had DTN go out on me since switching. ******* would go down a couple times every month when I was using them." - Comment from Bryce in AL.
"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 noticed that ******* quotes locked up shortly after the interest rate announcement yesterday while yours stayed stable." - Comment from Ron in Utah
"As a past ******* customer(and not a happy one), IQ Feed by DTN is a much better and cheaper product with great customer support. I have had no problems at all since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum
"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
"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
"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
"I had always used ******* but for the past 2 weeks have been trying DTN IQFeed. Customer support has been extraordinary. They call just to make sure your problem hasn't recurred." - Comment from Public Forum
"I am enjoying the feed very much - so superior to the broker provided feed I was previously using." - Comment from George
"I started a trial a few weeks back before the market went wild. DTN.IQ didn’t miss anything and beat my other provider. I decided to stay with you because of the great service through all the volatility." - Comment from Mike

In order to more closely align with new symbology from the TSX exchange, we will be making the following changes to Canadian equity symbols:
• Any symbol that currently ends in .U will now end in .UN
• Any symbol that currently ends in .R will now end in .RT
• Any symbol that currently ends in .US will now end in .U
• Any symbol that currently ends in .SR will now end in .R

There are currently 6 symbol collisions that can occur during this change and you might need to manually adjust any historical data you currently have saved to account for this. In each of the following cases, the current symbols are listed below and the symbol ending in .U will reference the symbol ending in .US after the change has been made.
• C.FAY.U - FIRST ASSET YIELD OPPORTUNITY
• C.FAY.US - FIRST ASSET YLD OPP TRUST
• C.GTU.U - CENTRAL GOLD-TRUST
• C.GTU.US - CENTRAL GOLD-TRUST
• C.ISL.U - ING FLOATING RATE SENIOR LOAN
• C.ISL.US - ING FLOATING RATE SENIOR LOAN
• C.OUY.U - O'LEARY U.S. STRAT YIELD ADV F
• C.OUY.US - O'LEARY US STRAT YIELD ADV FUN
• C.SBT.U - SILVER BULLION TRUST UNITS
• C.SBT.US - SILVER BULLION TRUST
• C.SIA.U - SKYLON INTL ADVANTAGE YIELD TR
• C.SIA.US - SKYLON INTL ADVANTAGE YIELD TR

We will also be taking the opportunity to correct a long-standing symbology issue with bond symbols in IQFeed that is causing inconsistencies in the symbology. This change will add a dot between the root symbol and any suffix/class identifier. For example:
Old Symbol / New Symbol
TAKA.CB / TAK.A.CB
SXNA.CB / SXN.A.CB
BRKB.17A.CB / BRK.B.17A.CB
CUSA14.CB / CUS.A14.CB
MOGA15.CB / MOG.A15.CB

Both of these changes are currently scheduled to be put into production on the weekend of July 13th.
