"I've been using Neoticker RT with IQFeed for two months, and I'm very happy with both of the products (I've had IQFeed for two years with very few complaints). The service from both companies is exceptional." - Comment from Public Forum
"I am enjoying the feed very much - so superior to the broker provided feed I was previously using." - Comment from George
"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 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

Is there an easy way to determine if an option traded for an underlying during the day, without actually having to download the tick or daily data for that option for the day?

ie, AAPL has A LOT of options... Not all options have a trade during the day. Right now, in order to determine what was traded, I have to download all the option symbols for AAPL, then download the tick data for those symbols to see the daily trades. Is there a better way to do this?

I guess I can try to filter out the trades by downloading the DAILY data for each option, and if there is any data, I can assume tick data is avail for that option, and then download the tick data...but I still have to look at the history of all option symbols for AAPL... which in both cases, takes a while.

It would be nice to have an API that helps with this. ie a CEO command with a date, and it will return true/false or the # of trades made for the chain returned.

Good morning,

It's a good idea, I'll let people know so we can consider adding this in the future, but, for now, I don't have something better than what you have already discussed, at least not without impacting your symbol counts. We do have some updates coming in the foreseeable future though that may help solve your issue in a s;ightly different way, so I will get those details out to you as we get closer to a beta release.

Tim
