I found that these happen quite a bit (especially in certain special fast conditions). Note that the third line below ('ba' update) shows 0 ask size at 97.97 price. I was able to match this particular sequence with market depth MD01 updates and there the size shows 14. Is there an explanation for this? (this particular sequence is from August, 6th, 2014 CLU4 contract). Can provide more examples if needed.

Hello, there was an issue that was resolved last month that could cause this type of occurrence. Are you still seeing this behavior in new data?

Hello,

I can check in my current data, could you specify starting date from which I shouldn't see it? Also, does it require by any chance using the latest version of IQFeed, currently I am using 5.0.0.14.
Finally, has this been-to your knowledge-an issue that has existed for ever/long time or was it just a temporary occurrence (if yes, what date ranges).

Thank you.

I am not 100% on that date range, but after Oct 1st I think should be safe.

FYI, we do not save any historical data for bid and ask size.

Yes, I am aware of the historical data restriction. All of this is live data. Thanks, will check my data after Oct 1st.
