"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
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

Hi,

I'm trying to get data for preferred shares ending in W for any stocks and the data does not seem to exist in IQFeed. I could be unaware of how they're called in IQFeed or it might be missing?

Things like BMO.PR.W, called C.BMO-W as far as I can tell show up as invalid. Same for BPO.PR.W, NA.PR.W, etc.

BPO.PR.W stands for:
Brookfield Office Properties Inc.
Class AAA Preference Shares Series W
https://web.tmxmoney.com/quote.php?qm_symbol=bpo.pr.w

Is there a corresponding symbol in the API?

The symbol you would want to utilize is C.BMO-*

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Thanks, I'll try that. Is it that every "PR W" symbol maps to "-*"?
