"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat

"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
"I am a hedge fund manager here. It’s funny, I have a Bloomberg terminal and a Bridge feed, but I still like having my DTN feed!" - Comment from Feras
"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
"Awesome response, as usual. It is a sincere and refreshing pleasure to do business with DTN, compared to your competition." - Comment from Ryan
"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 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
"Just a thank you for the very helpful and prompt assistance and services. You provided me with noticeably superior service in my setup compared to a couple of other options I had looked at." - Comment from John

I have problem with internet traffic. At the beginning of trading session as well as at the end of the trading session the traffic could hit several MBit/sec.

When I create a list of stocks (about 1,500) I use the following command:
SendRequestToIQFeed("t,MSFT\r\n");

I need only trades (open, High, Low Close, Volume), I do not need bid and ask info. I have filling that despite my request for trades only I still receive all information that I do not need. I have this filling because when I changed request to
SendRequestToIQFeed("w,MSFT\r\n");
I had the same internet traffic

Whether I use "t" or "w" parameter in the SendRequestToIQFeed function, the traffic remains unchanged (huge)

What should I do to reduce the traffic - I need trades only. Is it something I can do on my end, or you can do it by making some changes on my account on your end?

@JBEN - try to use the Dynamic FieldSet (http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/DynamicFieldsets.cfm) functionality

Good morning,

The problem is that the filtering of the data is done on your machine via IQConnect. So you are correct, that the t vs the w watch will not affect your incoming numbers. I do not have a way to limit this at the server level, but it would certainly have value to many so I will push it up to management on your behalf.

Tim

I monitor 2k symbols. At the market open and at the market close the traffic is hitting 5-7 MBit/sec.

As of now the average volume on the market is at the historical low. As an example AAPL volume is at the average level of 1980th.

Sonner or later the market will turn down and we will have an increase in trading volume. IF we have something like 2008, we should expect 5-10 times increase in volume at least. That mean I will have increase in inbound traffic to 30-50 Mbit/sec. This is a huge traffic not just for me but for you as well. Even now, on some days, at the market open and at the market close, I see your feed freezes for 10-30 sec. As I understand it is because of the traffic. How is it going to work when we have increase in trading volume on the market?

Is there any way, you can hard set my feed to send me only open/high/low/close/volume fields?
