"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 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'm very glad I switched to IQFeed. It's working perfectly with no lag, even during fast market conditions." - Comment from Andy via Email

"I just wanted to tell you what a fine job you have been doing. While *******, from what I hear, has been down and out, off and on, IQ feed has held like a champ this week." - Comment from Shirin

"I am keeping IQFeed, much better reliabilty than *******. I may refer a few other people in the office to switch as well." - Comment from Don
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"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

I am just getting started with IQFeed. In order to backtest some strategies, I need to retrieve 1-minute OHLC bars over extended periods of time (years)
So far, I only managed to get 1-minute OHLC bars for trades, but not quotes (bid and ask).
Is there a way to retrieve 1-minute OHLC bars for quotes?

Quotes are interesting too because they provide knowledge of the time-varying bid/ask spread and allow to simulate more accurately fills during backtesting.
I am familiar with Interactive Broker historical data. With Interactive Brokers, I can request OHLC bars for either the bid, the ask, the midpoint or for trades. Is there anything similar with IQFeed?

Thanks.

Good morning,

Unfortunately, IQFeed does not store any historical bid or ask data within it's systems, but we do have other products with this type of data available for a one time purchase to supplement your usage, if you would like to talk about purchasing this kind of data just let me know and I can have someone is sales reach out to you.

Thanks Tim for your reply. I will try to see what I can do with the data available through the API first and come back to you if I need additional data.

NxCore is a streaming service that would have this. But, I believe sales can provide data on a one time basis aside from that. If you contact sales and ask for Jerry, I am sure he can explain the options better than I.
