We found that some live tick data are different from historical tick data.

Live reporting more ticks than historical. These differences occur quite often throughout the day (thousands of ticks different).

Both live and historical use the same IQFeed on the same machine.

Which one is correct? Is live reporting more ticks or is the historical missing some ticks?

Thanks

Good morning,

It looks like something is duplicating messages in your live feed. Do you have a developer account with us? If so, I would suggest reaching out to us at the email given on this page, (you must be logged into your developer account for it to work) http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/support.cfm, and we can dive in to what options exist within our API.

Tim
