"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
"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

"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

"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

Maybe I am doing something wrong, but it looks as if the daily, continuous Lumber futures data is only available as of October 2008. I am using NinjaTrader 8 and MultiCharts. Can someone please help?

Furthermore, is there any overview of all continuous futures, where I could see how far the data goes back?

In review on the @LB#C (Random Length Lumber) contract continuous and back-adjusted data **DAILY DATA** starts on 10/10/2008 and has uninterrupted data through 8/17/2016.

Can you be more specific on how we can further assist you with this symbol and the attached data?

Would you like to see additional historical data before October 2008?

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your quick response!

Yes, I would like to see more historical data. Actually, I am surprised that there is no data before Oct 2008. Lumber futures have been around forever :-) Other data vendors have daily data going back to the 1960s.

Do you have a factsheet summarizing the availability of data for all or the most frequently traded futures? I could not find anything specific except for the general description which suggests that some US futures go back "as far as 1959". http://www.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?displayaction=data§ion=services

Best,

Cyberjoe

Please utilize the symbol LB#C which is the old Pit symbol for Lumber. Our daily historical data goes back to March 24th, 1994.

Unfortunately we do not have a Facts sheet summarizing the available data on the most frequently traded futures.

Thank you, Stephen!

Does omitting the leading "@" provide more historical data for other futures, too?

@ - Electronic contracts.

Leaving off the @ will lead you to the old Pit traded contracts and in some examples there is additional information out there for back-testing purposes.
