"I am a hedge fund manager here. It’s funny, I have a Bloomberg terminal and a Bridge feed, but I still like having my DTN feed!" - Comment from Feras
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"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
"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum
"If you want customer service that answers the phone, your best bet is IQFeed. I cannot stop praising them or their technical support. They are always there for you, and they are quick. I have used ****** too but the best value is IQFeed." - Comment from Public Forum
"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
"And by the way, have to say this. I love the IQFeed software. It's rock solid and it has a really nice API." - Comment from Thomas via RT Chat
"You have an excellent feed. Very few spikes for Spot Forex." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I just wanted to let you know how fast and easy I found it to integrate IQFeed into our existing Java code using your JNI client. In my experience, such things almost never go so smoothly - great job!" - Comment from Nate
"I cannot believe what a difference it makes trading with ProphetX!" - Comment from Bruce in Los Angeles

IQFeed Developer Support » Questions on upgrading to protocol 6.0 Jun 21, 2018 07:28 PM (Total replies: 4)

If I update the iqfeed client to and keep all of my existing code running on protocol 5.2 nothing should break, is that correct?

Curious why LabelAtBeginning became the default option for historical interval data? Seems like leaving LabelAtEnd as the default would have been less disruptive and prevented the need for digging through old code to add a field.

IQFeed Developer Support » Historical data requests in 64-bit VBA Jun 10, 2018 07:36 PM (Total replies: 7)

I never did get around to this and now I've forgotten how to even begin. Is there an example somewhere showing VBA and historical data pulls? Thanks.

Ok, figured it was trades only but thought I'd check. Thanks Tim.

IQFeed Developer Support » Historical options data May 22, 2018 01:44 PM (Total replies: 4)

Is the historical option data for trades or bid/ask?

Apologies and please disregard the above. Looks like you can subscribe to forums as well. Thanks Jay.

Thanks. So, the forum email subscriptions are topic specific only? I don't think that would deliver future price changes (e.g. a new topic posted for the 2019 new year).

Can you please post a link for the account management portal? I'm not getting any price change emails, so I must have something off in there.

(Also, I'm an old dude and stay as far away as possible from twitterbook)

I've just noticed the addition of "Extended Fundamental Data" to my bill. My understanding is that this is for dividend data. A few questions:

1) Is this historical dividend data or forward looking? If historical, how far back does it go?

2) While on the topic of historical fundamental data, is there a way to pull historical shares outstanding (or market cap) from the API?

3) Is it possible to subscribe to emails to anything posted in the products announcements forum (or wherever price increases are announced)? I feel like I'm always the last to know

IQFeed Developer Support » EOD Historical Dividend Adjustments Dec 27, 2017 02:38 PM (Total replies: 37)

Wow, this thread is nearly four years old!?! I'll never understand why splits and divs weren't made available via two new API calls. They're coming soon anyway (presumably) and would allow the whiners (ME) to create daily bars from the intraday data and adjust however they see fit. It would shut some of us up at least!

That's great...didn't realize this was available. Thanks Tim

Tim- Is that NxCore?

Anything new on this front?

Any update on this?

IQFeed Developer Support » EOD Historical Dividend Adjustments Jun 14, 2016 02:24 PM (Total replies: 37)

If I'm understanding you correctly, you're trying to go back and undo the manual one-off adjustments that were made in this past? I can see why that would be tricky and I always assumed you were going to start fresh with a new dataset of raw EOD prices.

Perhaps as an interim step you would consider adding calls for historical divs and splits only? That would allow a user to recreate raw EOD prices from intraday bars and then adjust as they see fit. I get that the EOD history is likely deeper, which is why you're not taking this approach yourself.

Apologies if I've made some bad assumptions about the issue.

IQFeed Developer Support » EOD Historical Dividend Adjustments Jun 14, 2016 02:04 PM (Total replies: 37)

Ok, fair enough. In my mind, this is simply three new api calls (raw prices, divs, split ratios) and it's done. The current EOD data/calls can remain as is.

IQFeed Developer Support » EOD Historical Dividend Adjustments Jun 14, 2016 12:15 PM (Total replies: 37)

Checking in on the EOD data, divs, and splits improvements...anything in the works?

IQFeed Developer Support » EOD Historical Dividend Adjustments Nov 12, 2015 09:34 AM (Total replies: 37)

Any updates in the works for EOD data, splits, divs?

Also, did the API fee go up this year? (didn't think this deserved its own thread)

IQFeed Developer Support » Daily Histories Missing Oct 23, 2015 12:13 PM (Total replies: 1)

I'm getting the data okay through the API now...HistoryViewer throws an error for a certain subset of these symbols for some reason. I don't really care about HV getting fixed, but I used it to check if there was a data problem and got a false positive. Anyhow, you can disregard this message for my purposes.

Hello- I'm unable to retrieve daily histories for several active ETFs (e.g. IWM, DUST, TWM, etc.). Is something going on with these? Thanks.

I have attached a png file to this posting which shows the time stamps/tick ID/info/mkt center/trade conditions.

I hope this answers your question.

Loren- Is the app in your screenshot an updated HistoryViewer? I only seem to have the one with the hex codes (pain in the butt). Thanks.
