"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

Hi,

Does the DTN satellite developer's feed transmit pre- and post- market trades? If so, I am unable to catch them.

I'm thinking that it is perhaps due to a flag that I'm checking for to make sure the trade is a current, valid trade, but I'm not sure which it could be.

That flags I'm looking at are illustrated in the following code:

if(csSymbol.CompareNoCase("QMON")) // Don't process the test quote
if(csSymbol.CompareNoCase("ZZZZZZZZ")) // Don't process the test quote
if(!(cUpdateInfoType & 0x60)) // Normal Updates only
if(iQuoteStatus != 0xFFFF) // Quote status is valid
if(iQuoteStatus & 0x0002) // Trade bit
if(iQuoteStatus & 0x0400) // Instant Quote
if(!(iQuoteStatus & 0x0800)) // Not a correction
if(iMarketCondition != 11) // Not out of sequence
if(iMarketCondition != 3) // Not a BunchedSold trade (reported late)
if(iMarketCondition != 6) // Not a PriorReference trade
if(fLast >= 0.0f) // No negative quotes
Process Quote Here...

If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate the help. I have already asked Jim F, but I can't seem to get an answer. :(

Thank you!

Jim got back to me. There's a bit that I was missing: Quote Status Bit 13 0x2000 After Market Trade. Didn't even see if after I don't know how many readthroughs of the spec!

So the line above was changed to:

if(iQuoteStatus & 0x0002 || iQuoteStatus & 0x2000) // Trade bit or After Hours Trade bit

and all is good.

Anyway, thank you Jim and everyone else!
