"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

I pulled the hourly prints for the second front month contract for ICE US Cocoa Futures (CC*2 and, currently, the May 23 expiry) from the getHistory API.

I noticed that the volume for daily traded contracts is different from what I see on my Bloomberg terminal. If I sum up the hourly volumes traded, I come to ~12,000 contracts traded on Feb 1 (Wednesday) and if I compare this to Bloomberg, I see ~23,000 contracts traded. I don't understand why these volumes would be different when the prices seem to match?

Hello, we see no issue with the volume value for the hour bars for 2/1 on @CCK23. We show 22719. You can verify this by using the IQFeed Time & Sales app (found in the IQFeed Applications folder on your desktop). Perhaps on your data pull you aren't counting the implied trades.

By "getHistory", do you mean the legacy COM objects that start with reqHistory, as described at http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/docs52/HistoricalviaCOM.cfm ? Or are you using the modern TCP/IP history requests, like HIT or HID?

Sincerely,

getHistory is actually internal code, I apologize, I misunderstood what a colleague's code was doing.
I see now that the values match. Thanks for the quick response.
