"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 » LimitEntry vs OpenLimit order Jul 3, 2016 03:48 PM (Total replies: 0)

I read the chm and I still don't understand the difference between OpenLimit and LimitEntry.

OpenLimit documentation:
An open order opens a position at the specified market rate or at a more favorable rate in case such rate is available on the market.

LimitEntry documentation:
A limit entry order with a buy direction is filled when the market is below the rate specified in the order.

So, if I want to open a buy position (for example) then what would be the difference ?

IQFeed Developer Support » Corrupted data ? May 17, 2016 10:58 PM (Total replies: 0)

On 18th May 2016 I have downloaded ticks for ADSK (via "HTT")

One of the data reply strings was :
"000,212.5500,212.8000,212.5500,196593,900,0,"

What does 000 stand for ?


I am sending this command :
"HTT,MSI,20151231 093000,20160311 160000,,093000,160000,1"

The earliest tick is
"2016-03-07 09:30:00.458727,70.6700,10765,10766,70.3500,71.0500,3096,C,7,8A,"

So am I limited for only one week worth of historical ticks ?


I downloaded minute candles for PFPT for 3/9/2016 , and I see some candles are missing, such as:
13:02
14:23
14:33

Maybe some other minute candles are missing....

Please explain


When i run this query:
"HIT,NE,60,20160226 093000,20160226 160000,,093000,160000,1,,,s"

I get this data:
2016-02-26 09:31:00,7.7800,7.6600,7.6900,7.6600,44984,44160,0,
2016-02-26 09:32:00,7.7400,7.6900,7.7001,7.7100,58814,13764,0,
...

2016-02-26 16:00:00,8.2100,8.2000,8.2000,8.2100,7601346,57892,0,
2016-02-26 16:01:00,8.2000,8.2000,8.2000,8.2000,7883616,282270,0,

My question:
Why am I getting a 09:31:00 candle, and why am I getting a "16:01:00" candle?
So which seconds does the 09:31:00 candle represents ? is it actually an aggregation of all the seconds between and including 09:30:00 and 09:30:59 ?
