"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum
"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

"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've been using Neoticker RT with IQFeed for two months, and I'm very happy with both of the products (I've had IQFeed for two years with very few complaints). The service from both companies is exceptional." - Comment from Public Forum
"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
"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 cannot believe what a difference it makes trading with ProphetX!" - Comment from Bruce in Los Angeles
"After all the anxiety I had with my previous data provider it is a relief not to have to worry about data speed and integrity." - Comment from Eamonn

I'm looking to colocate my trading platform, which uses IQFeed.

Assuming IQ doesn't offer colocation services, where (City, State) are the IQ servers? I'm in Los Angeles, and I've spoken with local colo's, but they concur I need to get my platform closer to the data feed source to improve upon what I already get at home.

Anyone out there already doing this? Any comments (good or bad) on colo providers?

Lastly, any recommendations on remote control software? The product I've been testing (from Funk software) appears to be unhappy with either the IQ data feed, or Interactive Brokers feed, and disconnects me periodically.

IQ's primary servers are in Omaha, NE. Our failover servers are located in Bellevue, NE.

I can't speak to the colo issue - being in development, I couldn't tell you if we're doing anything remotely similar to that or not. I'm sure somebody else can answer this issue for you.

I'm not sure what you're looking for in remote control software, but I like and use VNC (Google "VNC" to get all the variants) to admin my own and clients' servers, both across the room and across the country. It's not fast enough for serious remote application use, but sufficient for maintenance.

I found the problem some time ago. Turned out to be buggy firmware for my linksys firewall router (BEFSX41 model I think). There is an "unofficial" firmware release available on the net which solved my (and many other peoples) problems with the router doing sontaneous reboots.

Symantec PCAnywhere - It works well. Cost, I think around $250.
GoToMyPC - Have not tried. Has good reviews. Cost?
LogMeIn - I use the free version. I like it. It's free and easy so give it a try. (
