"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
"Previously I was using *******. IQFeed is WAY more economical, and for my charting needs is just as good, if not better." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"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

"I've been using Neoticker RT with IQFeed for two months, and I'm very happy with both of the products (I've had IQFeed for two years with very few complaints). The service from both companies is exceptional." - Comment from Public Forum

I am getting substantial lags in the IQFeed data. The lags are measured using the timestamp out of IQFeed and comparing it to the system time when the message enters my software.

Of course, there is an offset between the IQFeed clock and my local system clock. My hope is that the time difference would remain fairly constant and during low traffic times of day, it does. However, during high traffic periods, such as the last 30 minutes of trading, the offset varies a lot, sometimes it just keeps increasing.

Does anyone have any information on how many tickers and how many messages per second IQFeed can support?

I have attached a Python 3.6 program that I am using to do the measurement. First, you will need to start IQLinkLauncher and then run the program as "python"

Thanks in advance
