"I've been using Neoticker RT with IQFeed for two months, and I'm very happy with both of the products (I've had IQFeed for two years with very few complaints). The service from both companies is exceptional." - Comment from Public Forum
"I had always used ******* but for the past 2 weeks have been trying DTN IQFeed. Customer support has been extraordinary. They call just to make sure your problem hasn't recurred." - Comment from Public Forum
"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

In testing out some of the tick queries, I get far fewer than the MaxDatapoints I specify. For a random day of Google:

HTD,GOOG,1,1
!ENDMSG!,

HTD,GOOG,1,10
!ENDMSG!,

HTD,GOOG,1,20
2018-02-28 17:30:44,1105.81,100,1874094,1105.04,1109.35,15821,0,0,E,
2018-02-28 17:30:23,1106.19,200,1873993,1105.04,1106.19,15819,0,0,E,
!ENDMSG!,

(same two results for 50 and 100)

HTD,GOOG,1,200

I get this same behavior when using HTT, querying from 000000 to 235959 within a prior day.

Our assumption was that a MaxDatapoints setting of 1 would be an easy way to indicate if any trades happened during that time period, but it seems to be very unreliable and often returns 0 results even when many ticks occurred during the queried time period.

Any suggestions?

In older protocols, including the default 4.9 protocol, Other trades are filtered from the return. Send an S,SET PROTOCOL,5.2 message to the socket first and then the numbers will work.

So if I'm understanding this correctly, it selects (up to) MaxDatapoints results, and then filters. Is there a way to query a specific number of C trades?
