"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 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

Hello - for some unknown(to me) reason, the VIX.XO symbol for the VIX volatility index is
slow in updating at market open. 20-30 minutes to get the first update.

* Watchlist - 'Last' field. Updates correctly for other stocks & indices. Essentially, the last tick trade number.

* Time&Sales - for '1 minute' intervals, it's just stuck. Typically takes >20 minutes for first update at market open.

* Same problem in Excel spreadsheet, value is '=IQLink|VIX.XO!Last'

Only work around(so far) is to manually hit the refresh button for T&S minute interval, at which time it'll do the update. Everything else in Watchlists, T&S, Excel is updating correctly, so don't see a problem on my end.

Current DTN/IQFeed levels, Win7, blah, blah, blah.

Could you all setup something and see what happens on your end at market open over the next couple of days?

Hello AMA, it sounds like you are not authorized for the CBOE Indexes to be in realtime. This would cause a 20 minute delay in the VIX.XO for you. This delay started on Jan 1st 2010, due to the CBOE requiring an exchnage fee for their Indexes. The current exchange fee is $4.50 per month. This delay also affects the S&P 500 index or SPX.XO and several others if you are watching them. If you would like to have this added to your account please send us an email with your Login ID and we can usually have it added to your account within the hour for you.

Yup, that was it.

Thanks, Curtis...
