"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

Hi,

I'm trying to get data for preferred shares ending in W for any stocks and the data does not seem to exist in IQFeed. I could be unaware of how they're called in IQFeed or it might be missing?

Things like BMO.PR.W, called C.BMO-W as far as I can tell show up as invalid. Same for BPO.PR.W, NA.PR.W, etc.

BPO.PR.W stands for:
Brookfield Office Properties Inc.
Class AAA Preference Shares Series W
https://web.tmxmoney.com/quote.php?qm_symbol=bpo.pr.w

Is there a corresponding symbol in the API?

The symbol you would want to utilize is C.BMO-*

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Thanks, I'll try that. Is it that every "PR W" symbol maps to "-*"?
