"I've never had DTN go out on me since switching. ******* would go down a couple times every month when I was using them." - Comment from Bryce in AL.
"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
"I've been using IQFeed 4 in a multi-threaded situation for the last week or two on 2600 symbols or so with 100 simultaneous daily charts, and I have had 100% responsiveness." - Comment from Scott
"Very impressed with the quality of your feed - ******* is a real donkey in comparison." - Comment from A.C. via Email
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"Can I get another account from you? I am tired of ******* going down so often" - Comment from George
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton
"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger
"I'm very glad I switched to IQFeed. It's working perfectly with no lag, even during fast market conditions." - Comment from Andy 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

IQFeed Developer Support » Incorrect Data for Level 1 Tick by Tick May 31, 2019 10:32 AM (Total replies: 1)

Hi.
My goal is to follow 500 stock market symbols at the same time (the max allowed in my IQFeed account) using real time tick data.
In order to do that, I take the field "Last" - Last trade price from the regular trading session using the Level 1 TCP/IP socket. I ran a FOR loop, requesting to watch 500 symbols.
Then, every 15 minutes I analyze the last price and calculate the high and the low for these 15 minutes. I do these for the entire trading hours.
I get the tick data at a high refresh rate, but the problem is sometimes it is not correct! I analyzed several stocks, and saw that the last price was not consistent with Yahoo finance and google finance. It was a higher number from what it really was supposed to be.
I tried to use the real time bars (derivative data), but for 500 symbols the data of all of the symbols does not trigger the event in the code at the same time, and so the prices are not updated simultaneously.

What should I do?
