"I would just like to say that IQFeed version 4 is running very well and I am very happy with its performance. I would also like to extend a big thanks for the fast and efficient help that I always receive. My questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. Way to go!" - Comment from Josh in CO.
"This beats the pants off CQG, I am definitely switching to the ProphetX 3.0!" - Comment from Stephen
"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 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
"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken
"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum
"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"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
"This is an excellent value, the system is generous (allowing for 500 stocks) and stable (and really is tick-by-tick), and the support is fantastic." - Comment from Shirin via Email

Data and Content Support » VXX Data Missing May 30, 2019 06:53 AM (Total replies: 10)

Hi,

thx for the feedback.

Maybe, an even better solution would be to merge the history of VXX (the old one) and VXXB (the new one, now renamed VXX) not as you have done in spring 2018, but at the start of 2019 or at the very last days of the old VXX (whenever the volume of VXXB was bigger for the first time than VXX).

I suggest this, because as one can see by looking at the chart, there are some huge gaps in the VXXB history compared to VXX in spring and summer 2018, foremost due to illiquidity.

Since the replicating methodolgy of the two instruments are exactly the same, I think my suggestion would be the best solution for having proper charts as well as consistent data for backtesting.

Please consider my new suggestion.

Many thx

Quote: we can enter a Customer Request to create an additional symbol with the prepend VXX history with the price history.



This is definitely needed.
Please create this additional symbol for the complete old VXX price history (from 2009 to 2019).

Thank you

(I also create a support ticket)

IQFeed Developer Support » Get underlying for a futures option Dec 14, 2018 12:21 PM (Total replies: 3)

Hello,

thx for your feedback.

What you are saying is sometimes true but not always, to my knowledge, e.g.

- Bund-Futures Options exists for every month, but you have only 4 Futures contracts per years (March, June, Sep, Dec)
- Corn Futures: you have the Jan, Feb and Mar Options which all have the March Futures as underlying

Therefore my question if an individual option maybe has a field which contains the underlying Futures?

IQFeed Developer Support » Get underlying for a futures option Dec 4, 2018 02:07 AM (Total replies: 3)

Hi,

every option has an underlying. For index or equity options it is always the same. But for future options that changes with time due to the expiry of futures.

Therefore my question: Is it possible for a certain futures option to get the information about the ticker of the corresponding underlying through the IQfeed API, please?

Thank you

IQFeed Developer Support » Update message format for index options Aug 15, 2018 01:32 AM (Total replies: 1)

Sorry for the typos.

To clarify:

When I look into the documentation, it does not MATCH my update message format (e.g. there are much less fields in the update message I receive than the number of fields which are shown in the documentation regarding Update/Message Summary Format).

EDIT:
I just saw in the documentation that one can request Fieldnames...
and further that I probably receive the default field set (that would match much closer to the update messages I receive).
I am going to test further later and come back regarding this. Thank you

IQFeed Developer Support » Update message format for index options Aug 14, 2018 01:16 PM (Total replies: 1)

Hello,

To use the individual option data, I guess I would have to split the update message line.

But when I look into the documentation, it does not much my update message format. Probably, there are some differences for index/equity option data.

I attach a screenshot and I have marked in yellow what I think are the bid and ask price, respectively. But for my further development, it would be really good if I'd know the meaning of every comma separated field. Is this somewhere documented or could you give the field information, please.

Many thx

IQFeed Developer Support » Questions regarding option chain requesting Aug 14, 2018 12:29 PM (Total replies: 6)

@altmany

Thx for the welcome!
And even more thx for the very helpful reply.

1. Thanks to your suggestion, I could get finally a somehow satisfying option chain request for expirations further out in the future (SPX till Sep 2019).

2. I kindly ask the DTN support to replace the mentioned GOOG option chain request example in the documentation with an output that is correct and makes sense...

Cheers

IQFeed Developer Support » Questions regarding option chain requesting Aug 12, 2018 03:02 AM (Total replies: 6)

Hi,

I just started to get used to the IQfeed API.

Regarding the retrieving of option chains for an index or equities, respectively, I have some questions:

1. How am I able to get options chains for following years. E.g. when I try to get SPX option chain data buy using the command (CEO,SPX.XO,pc,ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWX,,1,2,1,0\r\n),
I just get data for 2018 option chains. And in the documentation I cannot see that there would be a field for YEAR (as it is a parameter in the future option chain request)

2. In the documentation for option chains, there is an example for the ticker GOOG (former Alphabet ticker) which I do not understand, because in the example result in the documentation does not show a strike?

Help is appreciated.
