"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe

"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
"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
"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger

"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email

Hello

From the tick data, is there a way to know if the trade was a market order buy/sell or limit order ? We see the bid and ask at the time, but is there a sure way to tell if it was Market order (may be use if the trade price was same as bid or ask and figure ?) ? Thanks!

It isn't easy. I think the seminal paper on that is "Inferring Trade Direction from IntraDay Data" by Lee and Ready. But there is another hitch. I read in some recent papers that the 'short on an uptick' rule biases historical data.

Thanks much stargazer! Will check it out. I thought Uptick rule doesn't exist right now.
