"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken
"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
"I use IQ Feed, Great stuff as far as data analysis information, storage and retrieval is concerned." - Comment from Public Forum
"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
"Excellent datafeed !!!" - Comment from Arely

It seems that HDX and HWX don't include the current period's partial data; Is this the expected behavior?

I'd assume if this is the expected behaviour it'd be because you're computing daily data at EOD and weekly data at end of week, but wouldn't it be more developer friendly to tack on an on-the-fly partial data candle at request time?

Seems to me like that must be what almost every developer does, every time they have to request daily/weekly data. The greater good would call for it be included, no?

Good afternoon,

Thank you for posting. This is something we have been looking at for some time. Hopefully we will be able to get this added for you, but it will likely be next year before it could be rolled out. For the time being, the current bar will still have to be pulled from the summary message in conjunction with the history call to get the data you need I am afraid. We will send out announcements to all developers when this functionality is available to test.

Alright thanks. Will be more fun for new developers to be sure.

In the meantime since I had to do this for both daily and weekly period, I've opted to simply call hourly data for the current day or week and compute a last candle to tack onto my returned data - this way I use mostly the same code for both, and don't need to manage watching/unwatching symbols!

Makes sense, just let us know if you see anything else along your way that I can help with.
