"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

Ever since I upgraded to the latest IQFeed, v4.6.1.0, it has been crashing occasionally on me: Every few hours, and only during market hours. The crash comes with a standard Windows error message, "This program ... must be shut down." (I can get the exact wording if you need, but it is nothing special).

I only use IQFeed with QuoteTracker, the latest version 3.9.5 . The previous version of IQFeed I had,, never had any troubles even once.

Helllp :)

I'm using Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, version 2003 SP2, in an Administrator account.

Hello Mike, with this error message, does IQFeed shut down or does QT or both? How many symbols are you tracking within QT, i.e; how many on the portfolio page, how many charts do you have open and how many studies per chart?

Only IQFeed crashes.

I was always tracking about 15-25 symbols using; 15-20 of those had charts open; and just the basic data for each chart: quote and volume.

I occasionally backfill a chart using IQFeed: using either "tick backfill" or non-tick (consolidated 15-second) backfill. This last market session I actually experienced no crashes.
