"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton
"Thank you so much - awesome feed, awesome service!" - Comment from Greg via Email
"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 have been using IQFeed now for a few years in MultiCharts and I have zero complaints. Very, very rare to have any data hiccups or anything at all go wrong." - Comment from Public Forum
"IQFeed version 4 is a real screamer compared to anything else I have seen." - Comment from Tom
"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

When i run this query:
"HIT,NE,60,20160226 093000,20160226 160000,,093000,160000,1,,,s"

I get this data:
2016-02-26 09:31:00,7.7800,7.6600,7.6900,7.6600,44984,44160,0,
2016-02-26 09:32:00,7.7400,7.6900,7.7001,7.7100,58814,13764,0,
...
...
2016-02-26 16:00:00,8.2100,8.2000,8.2000,8.2100,7601346,57892,0,
2016-02-26 16:01:00,8.2000,8.2000,8.2000,8.2000,7883616,282270,0,

My question:
Why am I getting a 09:31:00 candle, and why am I getting a "16:01:00" candle?
So which seconds does the 09:31:00 candle represents ? is it actually an aggregation of all the seconds between and including 09:30:00 and 09:30:59 ?

Interval data in IQFeed is timestamped in the second following the data it represents.

As a result, your 09:31 bar represents trades from 09:30:00-09:30:59.

We also do not send incomplete bars for time based intervals unless you are authorized for realtime data for the symbol AND requesting data up to the current second while it is still trading. Any bar that lies partially within the timeframe you are requesting will be returned.

As a result, your 16:01:00 bar represents data from 16:00:00 - 16:00:59 and is included because you requested the 16:00:00 second.
