"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"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
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton

"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email

Hello,

I am wondering if IqFeed time stamps take into account US daylight saving time, as US markets open at 9:30am EST during the autumn/winter but at 9:30am EDT/8:30am EST during the spring/summer.

So I am wondering if:

1. the IqFeed 9:30am time stamp is the opening time for US markets all year long?

2. time stamps are always EST, therefore I need to take take 9:30am during the autumn/winter, and 8:30am during the spring/summer?

Thanks

Hello,

Didn't want to start a new thread for a fairly related question.

when requesting historical data during a time of daylight savings, is the historical data adjusted too?

if yes is the adjustment for the whole length of request or does it "cut in and out|" at the dls times?

EG in a 180 historical day request say daylight savings changed 10 days ago would the whole 180 days be adjusted or only the part from 10 days on-wards.

Cheers
Jon

No. The status of Daylight Savings Time is whatever it was at the time of the data.
