"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
"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

Hello there,

I am having trouble pulling in ticks from the Vix futures product (@VX#)

This is using both my own custom software (API), and separately, I have tried via the QCollector software

So I think this is an issue on the IQFeed side?

Please can you let me know when this is resolved

Thanks
David

David,

I am not seeing any issues on our side, so if you could provide some additional information it would be helpful. Did this issue just start today (were you previously pulling @VX# data successfully)? Are you able to access the current data for @VX# in the IQFeed Watch Quote Display App? Are all other symbols working properly (including others from the CBOE Futures Exchange)? If after restarting your connection to IQFeed you are still having issues, please let us know what server you are connected to (IP in the connection manager) as well as what specific time-series data you are requesting.

Thanks

Hi Jay,

Yes other symbols are working, and yes have tried restarting etc.

For the @VX# symbol, there seems to be no data since

2017-11-15,08:59:51,13.05,3,134617,13.00,13.05,972720,0,0

So the last daily bar coming through is

2017-11-14,11.60,12.20,11.60,12.05,145137

Can you recheck this?

Thanks,

David

Thanks for the additional information. We will take a look at this and see what is going on with the continuation symbol (#). The tick history is available if you pull the individual contract data @VXZ17.
