"You have an excellent feed. Very few spikes for Spot Forex." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"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
"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
"Thanks for following up with me. You guys do a great job in tech support." - Comment from Phelps
"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
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"I used to have *******, but they are way more money for the same thing. I have had no probs with data from DTN since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"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 » Option download: latest EOD not available Jul 11, 2007 11:49 PM (Total replies: 0)

Tonight latest end-of-day data for options started with '2007-07-06' instead of '2007-07-11', e.g.

Symbol: AA HH
Days: 3
2007-07-06 00:36:35,3.7,3.2,3.7,3.4,33,0
2007-07-02 00:36:35,3.40,2.55,2.80,3.20,153,0
2007-06-29 00:36:35,2.70,2.15,2.15,2.70,80,0

whereas EOD for stocks are correct:

Symbol: AA
Days: 3
2007-07-11 00:44:20,42.49,41.79,41.79,42.43,11751400,0
2007-07-10 00:44:20,42.70,41.56,42.58,41.66,16271477,0
2007-07-09 00:44:20,42.54,41.51,41.53,42.36,17419220,0


Hi,

there seems to be a problem with historical end-of-day data for options as well.

Using the LookupClient and issuing

Symbol: GM GU
Days: 3

yields to:

2007-07-06 15:32:07,0.75,0.45,0.55,0.55,166,0
2007-07-02 15:32:07,1.55,1.15,1.45,1.45,20,0
2007-06-29 15:32:07,1.80,1.20,1.55,1.35,394,0

The result set seems to be shifted one day backwards - whereas a lookup of the underlying stock provides the correct data set:

Symbol: GM
Days: 3

yields

2007-07-09 15:30:14,37.56,36.60,36.60,36.77,15267818,0
2007-07-06 15:30:14,36.89,36.30,36.64,36.49,9091800,0
2007-07-05 15:30:14,36.81,35.98,36.12,36.76,17818338,0


As downloading historical data is pretty slow - at least here in Europe -
it would be great to provide end-of-day data of the latest trading day before
00:00am EST, say 6:00pm EST or so.

This would leave more time for analysis and preparation before the next trading day starts.


thanks for checking this, Steve!

>I am showing that quite of few of these simply didnt trade immediately at open.

I know. this is normal behaviour of options. but it is unlikely that none of these are being traded
after more than 60 minutes. moreover, should there not be a summary message at least ?

unfortunately all this is not reproducible at every time. sometimes it happens, sometimes not.

any advice how to tackle with this ?

I will check the timestamps in a next run (I do not record realtime data - only realtime analysis)

regards,

Andrej

I mean the delivering (the beginning of the streaming) of option data is delayed - yesterday around 60 minutes.

today I needed a second request of symbols. now they are being delivered correctly. once they stream everything is fine.

I never had this delay with stock-symbols.

when I request symbols for streaming, I devide my set of symbols in parts of 50 and let some seconds lapse between these parts. option-symbols and stock-symbols are mixed in each part.

so far I never had problems with this. but meanwhile I have observed on several occasions that the streaming of option-data starts delayed (or not at all) while the streaming of stock-data is always correct.

do you see any problems with my procedure ?
thanks.


yesterday streaming of realtime option data started delayed,
today there are no option data at all - while stocks seem to be ok.
I run DTN.IQ 2.4.8.8. Any advice ? Thanks.


I upgraded to DTN.IQ 2.4.8.8

In the fundamental message I miss the Strike Price in field 54 (Expiration Date seems to be there).
Here is what I get for the Options
