"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

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.
