"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

What is the units of the Average Volume field in the Fundamental data message ( is it shares or USD? is it the nominal value or specified in thousands/millions?

This question chimes with a similar recent query on this forum (, where it was not clear whether the Common Shares Outstanding field is the nominal value or specified in thousands (the latter, in this case).

I therefore suggest adding a <Units> column to the table in the documentation webpage, to make things clearer to users, for these data fields as well as all the others.

We are discussing making an update to this effect. Adding units for clarity is a good idea, but we want to do it for all columns that might benefit from it.

I'm looking at fundamental fields for the first time (and trying to find a forum thread that discusses the field order because it dertainly doesn't correlate to the table given at /api/docs/Level1FundamentalMessage.cfm)

Anyway, for TSLA field 4 (starting from 0), which is supposed to be the "Average daily volume in 1000's of shares (4 week average)", returned 13022000. This is the currect value for shares traded (in 1's, not in 1000's).

Are you specifying S,SET PROTOCOL 6.1? If not, you are using the default (older) protocol of 4.9. The default fields in the Fundamental Message differ, are in a different order, and may have different names in prior protocols. In this case, the field is the same, but 4.9 measured it in number of shares instead of 1000's of shares.

In general, you should always specify the latest protocol, unless you have backwards compatibility reasons for using an older one. (If you do, the page links to documentation for previous protocols.)

A list of the fields in the Fundamental Message, order, and what they mean in Protocol 6.1 is at The fundamental message cannot be customized.
