Dear all,

I would like to find out how to receive the microsecond time stamped data, as this is currently not working for me.

I have read that from the IQFeed version 5.2 this should be available. However, it does not work for any of the symbols I tried (@ES#, @NQ#, MSFT, NVDA and a few others). Could you point me in the right direction, please?

I am using windows 10, logging into IQFeed Launcher and getting the data through an API access via function HTT, such as:
"HTT,{symbol},20170101 075000,20170530 160000,,093000,160000,1\n"

The output I am getting looks like this (notice please the first column):
2017-01-03 09:30:00,2252.00,21,188907,2251.75,2252.00,524032,0,0,C

Is there a different function and/or setting I should be using instead?

The behavior is the same regardless if I use Python or R. I have not tried C# yet, but I suspect the problem is in the HTT function call.

Best regards,

Good morning,

It appears that you are not setting your protocol for the connection correctly. There are details on how to do this available here, https://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/IQFeedProtocols.cfm, you will need to use the latest protocol in order to receive microsecond data.
