"I have to tell you though that using the IQFeed API is about the easiest and cleanest I have seen for some time." - Comment from Jim
"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

"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

There are duplicate symbols for SYDI in the satellite datafeed.

Indexes : SYDI - Sydney All Ordinaries
NASDAQ : SYDI - Syndication Inc.

I first noticed the duplicate symbols on Wed, March 8, 2006.

I don't know if the specs for the feed allow duplicate symbols across different databases, but this is the first one I've ntoiced over the last year or so that I've been using the satellite datafedd.

There is no guarantee of unique symbology on the Satellite feed. You will see this most often between indexes and stocks. This is the reason why many feeds will convert index symbols to a unique symbology, such as our own DTN.IQ using symbol.X for index symbols. On CBOE Indexes, there can be other symbol contention, so we chose to use symbol.XO for CBOE Index on our IQ platform.
