"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
"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
"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum

What has happened to the AMEX Composite data ?

XAX.X appears to be dead since 11/28/08, at least that is where my data stops

The symbol is still in your symbology

What is the new symbol for the AMEX Composite?

What happened, will it start working again ?

I just pulled up XAX.X and have 1806 updates for today (last update was 1319.050, up 25.820 at 16:06:19). I'm not seeing any issues. What software are you using? Can you post a screenshot that may help us determine what is causing the issue?

Hi Jay,

I am still using tradestation 2000i with my satellite data.

Did you guys possibly move the symbol to a new table or something, do I need to set up a different symbol collection template?

I have templates for AMEX STOCKS, AMEX INDICES, ALL US INDICIES, DTN INDEXES collecting so ?

I have XAX.X showing up in "Index" category in the globalserver and its worked the last 10 years, now dead for couple months.

Let me know what I should try to get the symbol.

Hi Jay,

Can you also please find out why I still can't get OPRA Indices real time, it stopped working more than a year ago and I have been paying the $4 all this time, complained last year, and still it never was resolved.

Hello Joe, I am looking into this right now for you. So far, I am able to get the OPRA indices here with a few exceptions that they look to be delisted since no platform is bringing them up. However, can you email with your account information so I can bring up your account here to check your account? My email address is
