Hi,

I epxerienced, that requests for historical data may sometimes last long (e.g. 10 days for daily MSFT data > 30 secs).

Is there any way to abort a request and to make sure, that no data for this request is returned after abortion ?

Regards

Dierk,

At this time there is not function available to abort a history request prior to receiving your data back.

However, we agree this would be a good thing to have. So, we'll place it on the wish list for a future product version.

Thank you,

If you use the sockets you can just close the socket, right?

There is not a command that you can send programmatically, but you can close the socket.

Does IQFeed do the entire request, then pipe it out to the history socket only after the complete request has been downloaded?

If I close the history socket, am I actually saving any net bandwidth?
