"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

Data and Content Support » Euronext data wrong Oct 7, 2019 04:37 AM (Total replies: 2)

Right now, the real time data from euronext is wrong.
All the last prices are 0. for exemple, PMZ19

please, can you fix it as soon as possible ?

Thank you

IQFeed Developer Support » FDS request bug Sep 2, 2019 09:28 AM (Total replies: 10)


here are more details about my last message.

From my C# program the following command line is executed :

var iqparams= $"-product {productId} -version {productVersion} -login {login} -password {password} -autoconnect";
Process.Start("IQConnect.exe", iqparams);

With iqfeed : IqFeed Start and when my program close Iqfeed close which is very fine.
With iqfeed : Iqfeed Start and close few seconds later with no reason. which make the not usable at all.

Cannot test. the version closes few seconds after startup (I would say between 2 and 10 seconds)..


IQFeed Developer Support » where is the close price date ? Aug 20, 2019 08:43 PM (Total replies: 2)

Hello Gary,

I am working on a position keeping software. it allows user to add to his position any security from any market.
for each security in position I want to feed the software with the following informations (among ohters):
Close,settle (if applicable),date.
for exemple,
for CAQ19 :

date | close | Settle
2019-8-20 | 150.2 | 150.2
2019-8-21 | 154.2 | 154.1
2019-8-22 | 155.1 | 154.9

the date is the market local date. I mean if the market close the 2019-8-20 at 19:00:00 even if my local date at the same moment is 2019-8-19 or 2019-8-21 this must not have an impact.

these data are stored and used to valuate the position (p&l,greeks...) and to compute the Value at Risk.

there is no need for me to listen to the feed for tick by tick data. So I made a batch that takes a snapshot (subscribe/unsubscribe) nearly each hour; for each security I get the UpdateMessage, now I want to store the close and the date in my table (in case of new close).

exemple, I get this :
close= 150.2
Last Date= 2019-8-20
Last Time= 17:40:02

how to know if the close belong to 2019-8-20 or 2019-8-19 or even 2019-8-21 (in case there was no trades for 1 or 2 days) ?

In the Update Message, what is the date of the close value (Close field) ?
For the settle there is a "Settlement Date" field but not for the Close.
Is there any logic I can apply to find the close date ?

Hello Gary,

I still can reproduce the bug every time.

When entering only FDS,8,71,20190817,4 it's working but if I enter the 3 requests after connecting as I mentioned then I get the wrong result !

problems :
- the header line of the 3rd request is wrong.
- it seems that some lines of the 2nd request are missing

It seems that this bug occurs if I do this just after the connection.
