"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum
"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum

Hi,

When using IQFeed client COM object for historic data the retrieved data don't have
millisecond timestamps.

2016-02-16 00:25:58,51.0900,50.1300,50.9000,51.0900,37291208,0,

And when using the same client COM object for level1 real time data the retrieved data also
don't have microsecond timestamps.
Q,@ESH16,22,1943.75,1,0.000514734,653587,1,1948.00,1927.75,1943.50,1943.75,106,72,,,20.25,10:32:50a,3014453,1943.00,1942.75,0.25,,1942.75,,0,,,,,02/29/2016,,1943.75,03/18/2016,,,1,0,,,0.25,0.25,0.75,1,0.010418006,,12,2,18,1876651,,,,,,317242,10:32:51,10:32:51,,3430031,,02/26/2016,43,43,43,10:32:50,43,

What should be done to get the milli and micro timestamps ?


Thank you very much.

Milliseconds are only available using protocol 5.0 or higher. Microseconds require protocol 5.2 or higher.

You must set your protocol in each connection to IQFeed. In your case, since you are using COM, each instance of the COM interface is a new connection to IQFeed so you need to set the protocol in each of them.
