"I've been using IQFeed 4 in a multi-threaded situation for the last week or two on 2600 symbols or so with 100 simultaneous daily charts, and I have had 100% responsiveness." - Comment from Scott
"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
"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
"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"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'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
"IQ feed works very well, does not have all of the normal interruptions I have grown used to on *******" - Comment from Mark
"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
"There is no doubt that IQFeed is the best data provider. I am very satisfied with your services. And IQFeed is the only one that I would recommend to my friends. Now, most of them are using your product in China." - Comment from Zhezhe

Have a request for future watchlists:

* Screen real estate is hard to come by...
* Watchlist cells have half of the vertical space taken up by the symbol, other half is white space.
* How about implementing a resizing capability for vertical space in the cells, similar to how
you allow for horizontal resizing? Horizontally, I can cram stuff together as much as I stand,
but can do nothing for vertical sizing.


This way, I can scrunch down the vertical real estate my watchlist cells use, while still having a
large enough font size for easy viewing of the symbols & data.

You might apply this same idea to the header row, right above the symbol/data cells, too, as
there's wasted 'gray' space on my watchlists here, too.

Thanks...

Thanks for the suggestion AMA. We will put this on the list, but DTN.IQ is primarily being developed in maintenance mode as opposed to adding new functionality and features. Instead, our client development efforts have been focused on our ProphetX platform. With ProphetX, we do have a greater focus on screen real-estate. In Quote Sheets (like a watch list in DTN.IQ), you can resize height, width and other properties not exposed in DTN.IQ. You can also run in "Caption-less Mode" and remove scroll bars and tool bars. See the attached screen shot.

I finally got around these issues by starting to use Excel/DDE as a way to watch some numbers. Excel is very flexible and can be customized in a zillion ways; much more so than Watchlists will ever be able to do...

This is an old thread, but I would second this......even with the new app update, the interface is sadly lacking.

I am running a Benq PD3200 32" 4k monitor, with scale and layout at 150%. All of my other apps work really well on this setting. ALL OF THEM, and that's lots.

But the Snapquote app? It's a mess. The fonts are so small I can't read them. Half of the characters can't be seen because they are cut off. To use the Snapquote app, I have to adjust my screen settings, view the app, then change them back.

The News app? It opens on my screen with the side bar totally minimized, cutting off the titles. Nothing shows up in the upper or lower dialog for news. Every day, I have to make multiple adjustments to see news. The alert noise is totally annoying, and I can't change it.

All of the IQFeed apps are in need of interfaces that actually work well with current versions of Windows, on a trader's screen. And have settings to adjust to suit individual traders. Sadly, none of them do.

I realize they have just gone thru a major update. But it's not good enough. Please keep working.

Thanks for the feedback!

We will get these issues added to our issue tracker for future development efforts and as you said "keep working".

I noticed in our logs that you are using the first build of IQFeed 6.0. Although it won't address all of your issues, I do recommend upgrading to the latest build on our website. The issue this build will address is the news app not displaying headlines on initial load (but the other scaling issues remain). There are also many other smaller enhancements to the apps and fixes for stability after lost internet connection.
