What time stamp is IQ Feed data in? I have been given two different answers from different Live Chat Support staff and need to confirm the correct time stamp. Is it Daylight Saving Eastern Time or Eastern Time??

Hi again Adrian. It is ET. We are not in DST currently.

Thanks Robert. So during summer when some cities in the US start using daylight saving time do IQ Feed time stamps remain on Eastern Time or switch to Day Light Saving Time also?

So if I download 5 years worth of minute data there will be a combination of DST ET and ET time stamps depending on which month of the year it is which I will need to account for?

Since DST changes happen open Sunday morning at 2 am when nothing is trading, there is no historical overlap to account for. But, yes, our historical data is in Eastern time and our times move back and forth from daylight savings time as the seasons occur.
