"I would just like to say that IQFeed version 4 is running very well and I am very happy with its performance. I would also like to extend a big thanks for the fast and efficient help that I always receive. My questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. Way to go!" - Comment from Josh in CO.
"This beats the pants off CQG, I am definitely switching to the ProphetX 3.0!" - Comment from Stephen
"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 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
"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
"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum
"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"This is an excellent value, the system is generous (allowing for 500 stocks) and stable (and really is tick-by-tick), and the support is fantastic." - Comment from Shirin via Email

I am subscribing to streaming news and have a question about the nature of symbols in the news headline message.

When I receive a news headline, the symbols (when specified) seem to sometimes contain info other than just symbols. In the sample message below, the symbols according to the API doc are: [:BZRatings::BZEarnings::BZTradingIdeas::BZMovers::VEEV:]. Of those it looks like the ones starting with "BZ" are not symbols but some kind of source identifier. Is that correct? If so, how do I sort out symbols from non-symbols?

Sample news message received:

N,BEN,21803721335,:BZRatings::BZEarnings::BZTradingIdeas::BZMovers::VEEV:,20160831 151644,Veeva's Good Quarter Earns It A Premium Valuation In Canaccord's View

Hello,

Thanks for the question, I had not thought about this challenge before. These are source specific fields that are sent to us by the vendors. I don't think that there are any vendors that are sending symbols with any lower case letters, so you could check against that. There is one other feed that we have who has similar story categories that comes to mind, and they use all upper case, so they would be a little different.

MNT, sends their category information with a .MN on the end. So if the source is MNT and the symbol ends in .MN, you would want to filter those out as well.

I'll talk with the team about this, as something we can consider improving as we move forward though, so thanks again for bringing it up and if there are any other exceptions that I have let out let me know. But, for now it will not be as easy for you as we would like.

Tim

Thanks Tim for the pointers. I will filter as you have suggested.
