"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
"Version 4.0.0.2 has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.
"I have been using IQFeed now for a few years in MultiCharts and I have zero complaints. Very, very rare to have any data hiccups or anything at all go wrong." - Comment from Public Forum
"Thank you so much - awesome feed, awesome service!" - Comment from Greg via Email
"Just a thank you for the very helpful and prompt assistance and services. You provided me with noticeably superior service in my setup compared to a couple of other options I had looked at." - Comment from John
"I would just like to say that IQFeed version 4 is running very well and I am very happy with its performance. I would also like to extend a big thanks for the fast and efficient help that I always receive. My questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. Way to go!" - Comment from Josh in CO.
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob
"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've never had DTN go out on me since switching. ******* would go down a couple times every month when I was using them." - Comment from Bryce in AL.
"IQ feed works very well, does not have all of the normal interruptions I have grown used to on *******" - Comment from Mark

Hi there,

We have a system where we use Realtime tick data from IQFeed and then we download all the data for the day at the end of the day as Historical data from IQFeed.

We are seeing that they do not match. For example:

Here is data from a time period we got in realtime: (using command: wXG#)
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.50,11839.50,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.00,11839.50,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.00,11839.00,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.00,11839.50,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.00,11839.00,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.00,11839.50,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.00,11839.00,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.00,11839.50,11838.50,
Q,XG#,04/04/2018,07:57:20.072000,11838.50,11839.50,11838.50,

Here is the data from the same time period we got as historical data: (using command: HTT,XG#,20180404 000000,20180409 170500,,,,0,,)
2018-04-04 07:57:20.072000,11838.50,1,57349,11838.50,11839.50,3106867,C,68,01,

It seems that the historical data is consolidated some how.
Is it possible to get the same resolution as realtime when downloading historical data?

Regards.

Lance

Good morning,

We do not have bid and ask history available, so I believe that is the discrepancy you are seeing here. You could add the message contents field to your request to validate that.

Hello.

Thanks for the reply. I see now that we can match realtime with historical by not processing realtime data that has Message Content that's not C.

Is there a way in realtime to just get Message Contents that are C so we don't have to filter on our end?

Thanks.

Lance

You can do a tSYM watch and that will give you all of the trades and that should match our history.

Note: Trades can also be of type O or of type E, in addition to C as you noted above.
