"I will tell others who want to go into trading that DTN ProphetX is an invaluable tool, I don't think anyone can trade without it..." - Comment from Luther
"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 am keeping IQFeed, much better reliabilty than *******. I may refer a few other people in the office to switch as well." - Comment from Don
"And by the way, have to say this. I love the IQFeed software. It's rock solid and it has a really nice API." - Comment from Thomas via RT Chat
"Very impressed with the quality of your feed - ******* is a real donkey in comparison." - Comment from A.C. via Email
"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
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"If you want customer service that answers the phone, your best bet is IQFeed. I cannot stop praising them or their technical support. They are always there for you, and they are quick. I have used ****** too but the best value is IQFeed." - Comment from Public Forum

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.
