"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
"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
"You are much better than lawyers or the phone company because you answer the phone when I call! I just love your customer service." - Comment from Isreal

"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

Hi - I realize you guys aren't adding a lot of new features to DTNIQ these days, but here's one that would be very handy and probably not all that difficult to fit into the existing code.

* T&S windows allow one to set features for an individual window without requiring those features to be the global default. Ex: 'Load data options', select 3 days of data for window #1 and maybe 4 days data to be downloaded for window #2. While you can make a setting the global default, you don't have to do so for a window, if you want a different feature for just that window.

* Options chains, otoh, don't all for this. Ex: I might run an OptChain for 'AAPL' and select current month, in/out of the money 3 deep. Works fine, maybe run all day this way. However, if I want to pull up a 2nd OptChain and run a full set of options(all months, no filters) for say, 'MSFT', I can only do this if I make -these- settings the default.

* I might want to run in some sort of mixed mode: 'AAPL' very selctive, 'MSFT' showing all months/strikes, 'CSCO' showing two near months, at/near the money options, etc. As of now, I can't do that. All OptChains need to have the same filter criteria, because of the need to make a set of features the default to have them go into effect.
