Recently, I am getting error to login at the first attempt, but subsequent attempt will succeed. Do you know what could cause this error? I haven't seen this before. Also, is there a way to kill iqconnect process and restart it again if the call back routine timed out in curtain time?

Thanks

I would like to add stock charting to my trading program. I am not a GUI person, does anyone know what are the good stock charting libraries out there? If I want to learn how to develop a stock chart, what are the things I need to know. My primary developing language is C#, but I code server side Java for a living.

Data and Content Support » DTN unable to provide realtime data? Aug 21, 2007 11:06 AM (Total replies: 10)

Hi dhakme, Who is the other data provider? Do you have good experience with it?


Hi Steve,

Could you please help to figure out the workaround for the broken real time feed from 148 servers? I found out three types of errors:
1) not found returned.
2) real time feed arrived late
3) returns corrupted messages like
F,NDY XG,C,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,n,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
P,NDY XG,C,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,n,,,,,07/31/2007,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,12,2,,,,,,,,1,,,,,,,

I can easily work around 1 & 2. But I am having difficulties to figure out workaround for 3. It seems IQFeed got stuck somewhere, once it happened, the symbol will not be updated. The only way I found out is to disconnect & reconnect to IQFeed. Since 148 servers return the corrupted messages quite often, the reconnection to IQFeed is fairly frequent. Somehow, this process causes IQFeed Client to crash.

Could you please help so that I can get the data feed behind & go back focusing on trading?

Thx


Since Option Search returns expired contracts, I tried OptionChain lookup. I found two problems:
1) It doesn't return LEAPs, I sent in "OEA,HD,1,4;", no LEAPs returned.
2) It returns invalid option symbols, with LookupClient,

Steve, I need to clarify my earlier post about no updates from 148 new servers occasionally. I do get intermittent updates, except it is a corrupted message. I attached part of logs from 148 servers.
