"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
"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
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

"DTN feed was the only feed that consistently matched Bloomberg feed for BID/ASK data verification work these past years......DTN feed is a must for my supply & demand based trading using Cumulative Delta" - Comment from Public Forum Post

IQFeed Developer Support » Not getting historical Tick data Apr 3, 2018 12:29 PM (Total replies: 2)

Hi I am new to IQfeed and DTN. I am using the Developer license. I am generally interested getting historical data for testing purposes. I am using Python on Windows 8.1. I found a small script on the forum that I adapted to download 1 min data and it works just fine. I have just downloaded a stocks in the S&P500. However I am struggling with tick data downloads. I have tried HTT and HTX but no joy at all.

I have failed to get anything from the example scripts as well.

The edited script that I am using is below. I would appreciate any guidance on this as well as anything relate to python that I need or I may be missing. For Python 2.7 I am using Anaconda (64 bit)

*************************************************************************

import sys
import socket
import string

startdate= '20180101 093000'
enddate = '20180326 160000'

def readHisSock(sock, recv_buffer = 4096):
buffer = ""
data = ""
while 1:
data = sock.recv(recv_buffer)
buffer += data
if "!ENDMSG!" in buffer: break
return buffer[:-12] #removes endmsg line

host = "127.0.0.1" #localhost
syms = ['GE', 'AAPL']
dir = "C:\Users\My Documents\LiClipse Workspace\IQfeed_data_download"

port = 9100 #history socket

for sym in syms:
f = open(sym + ".csv", "w")
message = "HTT," + sym + "20180101 093000, 20180326 160000,,093000,160000,,,,1\n"
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect((host, port))
s.sendall(message)
d = readHisSock(s) #d is a string
s.close

d = "".join(d.split("\r")) #server sends multiple endlines
d = d.replace(",\n","\n")[:-1] #server has comma delimiter at end of each record

f.write(d)
f.close()
