"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

Can someone please tell me what the difference is between:

  • S,CURRENT UPDATE FIELDNAMES
  • S,UPDATE FIELDNAMES


When I specify "S,CURRENT PROTOCOL,6.0" the response includes both of these, one after the other, and the first has less fields listed than the second. I can see that "CURRENT UPDATE FIELDNAMES" maps to a [P] summary message, yet "UPDATE FIELDNAMES" doesn't seem to map to an [F] fundamental message. Does this dual output have anything to do with the fact that I specified "trade-only watch?" Perhaps I'm misunderstanding.

<UPDATE FIELDNAMES> reports the full list of fieldnames that are potentially available from IQFeed in response to watch commands (currently about 65 fields).

<CURRENT UPDATE FIELDNAMES> reports those fields that IQFeed currently includes in your watch messages. By default this includes only 16 fields out of the ~65 total fields that are potentially available.

The process for selecting which data fields IQFeed includes in your watch messages is described here: http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/DynamicFieldsets.cfm

Thank you, altmany. Between your explanation and looking at source examples, I understand.
