"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"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
"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

"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

For the symbol WDR (NYSE, Waddell & Reed Financial), there seems to be a gap of 1 hour 15 minutes in the tick data for June 9, 2017. Here are six consecutive lines I get from IQFeed:

1,2017-06-09 13:01:28.740537,18.9000,200,2081670,18.9000,18.9100,959992,C,5,01,
1,2017-06-09 13:01:28.741779,18.9000,100,2081770,18.9000,18.9100,959993,C,18,01,
1,2017-06-09 13:01:28.743985,18.9000,100,2081870,18.9000,18.9100,959994,C,26,3D,
1,2017-06-09 14:16:55.203542,18.2500,37194,2119064,18.6700,18.2500,1297978,C,7,3F,
1,2017-06-09 14:16:55.204357,18.8800,500,2119564,18.6700,18.2500,1297980,C,11,3D,
1,2017-06-09 14:16:55.204613,18.2500,500,2120064,18.6700,18.2500,1297981,C,7,01,

This is a pretty actively-traded stock that usually has at least one trade every minute. It's simply not possible that there were really no trades during the 1 hour 15 minutes between 13:01 and 14:16.

Is this a hole in your database?

I also found that the ticks for WFM (Whole Foods) on June 16, 2017 start at 9:50:00. That's 20 minutes worth of trading (since 9:30:00) missing. Again, hard to believe that nobody traded Whole Foods at all for 20 minutes at the beginning of the market.

I ran a script through all the ticks I've downloaded (for about 800 symbols) for the past six months, and found 162 instances of two ticks being more than 10 minutes apart. These are all pretty actively-traded symbols, so it is unlikely that there were really no trades. Can you take a look at the file I attached?

Thanks.

Wow, I never knew that could happen! I just tried Googling a few of these occasions and I see that the exchanges indeed halted trading. Thanks for looking into this and responding so quickly!
