"I used to have *******, but they are way more money for the same thing. I have had no probs with data from DTN since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"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

"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

Hello,

I am not familiar with the 3rd party API parts, but for our end, you would want to access our level one data and then, as that data comes in, do any parsing or calculations you need to on it, and then use that data to update the other app. I would assume that any app that allows for a customized symbol would have a method defined, OnSymbolUpdate or something along those lines. But, I am guessing it will be different for each charting app.

We do not have an option that would allow you, via the API, to create a symbol within our servers that would in turn, automatically update on 3rd party apps. It will all have to happen at the API/3rd party app layer.

Tim
