Am I safe with the assumption that the messages I receive for one symbol will be in chronological order, or do I need to code for the possibility that an exchange or IQFEED may send a tick out of chronological order occasionally?

Particularly, if my requests are

S,SELECT UPDATE FIELDS,Symbol,Most Recent Trade,Most Recent Trade Time
t@ES#

Will Most Recent Trade always be the most recent? Or do I need to use CPU checking its timestamp against the previous tick's timestamp?

Good morning,

Yes, trades per symbol, should be chronological.

Tim
