"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
"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

IQFeed Developer Support » Level I News Feb 3, 2010 09:55 PM (Total replies: 1)

I'm confused about how to receive streaming news via TCP/IP.

My app currently processes streaming Level I data received over port 5009. If I want streaming news as well, do I simply send the S,NEWSON command over the same port, or do I need a second winsock object for port 60018. Per the S,IP message I receive, the news server uses port 60018.

My platform is Microsoft Access, and I have a Market Scan form with an ActiveX winsock control on it. I use that control to receive streaming Level I data over port 5009. As messages are received, I pump them through my VBA message processor. My goal is to get streaming news coming in as well, and pump that through the same message processor. Obviously if I get a "N" message, I'd handle it differently than the "Q" messages I currently process. Can I do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. John.

DTNIQ Client Software Wish List » Extended Trading Time and Sales/Charts Oct 19, 2006 10:49 AM (Total replies: 1)

I use Fidelity's Active Trader Pro to trade. In a recent enhancement, their Time and Sales and Charting tools were enhanced to include the pre-market and after hours trading sessions. Any plans for the same in the corresponding DTNIQ tools? Would be GREAT to have. Given that IQFeed already reports such trades, it shouldn't be too big a deal to include them in the front-end tools.

Thanks, John

IQFeed Datafeed Wish List » Shares Short for Equities Nov 13, 2005 11:54 PM (Total replies: 1)

Any chance you could add the number of shares that have been sold short to the IQFeed Fundamental Data Format record? You already provide shares outstanding and percent held by institutions. I figure if Yahoo! can provide the quantity of shorted shares for stocks, that data ought ot be readily available to DTN. Thanks, John.

IQFeed Developer Support » Running DTN.IQ and IQFeed App Simultaneously Nov 13, 2004 03:29 PM (Total replies: 1)

Okay, never mind, I do need help with this. As per a recent thread, the developer was advised to simply connect to the socket instead of registering his app in order to allow IQFeed and DTN.IQ to run simultaneously. I tried this and can't make it happen. Even using the VB History Socket sample I get an error. "Run-time error 40006: Wrong protocl or connection state for the requested transaction or request".

To use an existing connection (i.e., with DTN.IQ already running), both my app and the VB History sample use the following in lieu of registering the app: sckData.Connect "127.0.0.1", 9100. This produces the above error when the SendData command is used.

Any suggestions as to why this isn't working? Also, I tried port 5009 to no avail. I can connect to that port, but I can't send data to it. I do receive the time checks from the server every minute, but can't use port 5009 otherwise.

Did Modulus develop the charting software used by DTNIQ?

DTN.IQ Client Software Support » Charting Formulas Sep 16, 2004 08:03 AM (Total replies: 2)

Have had no luck in determining "how" some of the lower studies are computed in the DTNIQ charts. DTNIQ phone support sent me here. Trying to experiment in Excel and can't match the DTNIQ charted values. For example, the ADX lower study plots values for ADX, DI+ and DI-. I've tried to approximate the plotted values in Excel for both the daily chart and the Minute/5-Minute chart and haven't come close.

Surely there is documentation somewhere that would describe "how" your application computes values for the chart. I'm using saved Time and Sales data as the source and calculating values in Excel from there. I've been all over the web on ADX, DI+, DI-, and exponential smoothing. I have not found any technique that will produce values similar to those the DTNIQ chart.

My goal is to approximate some of the technical indicators like ADX, RSI, etc. in Excel so I don't have to open a lot of DTNIQ chart windows. I'd be very happy with just the formulas and techniques for charting the ADX (and it's associated DI+ and DI- lines) to start. Once understood, I could move on to other indicators with less trouble.

Please help!! Thanks,

John
