Hello,

I know that we can currently get the daily updated Market Symbols file from this link:

http://www.iqfeed.net/symbolguide/index.cfm?symbolguide=lookup&displayaction=support§ion=guide&web=iqfeed

It looks like the direct link to the file is this:
http://www.dtniq.com/product/mktsymbols_v2.zip

According to the page, this file is updated every day at around 6:05am Central Time.

My question is, can I download the historical Symbols? For example, I want to get the file which would contain the Equity and Option Symbols from last month. Is there any way I can get this somewhere?

Thank you.

I'm sorry, we don't maintain such a file that lists historical or expired symbols.

sorry, it's come to my attention that we do have files of expired equities and options. Please contact our support team by email (support@iqfeed.net) and provide your IQFeed user ID, so that we can provide you with links to those inhouse downloads.

Thanks Stephen,

How often is that file updated? Also, can you please explain more the content of the file?

Looking at the EQUITY file it seems to contain the symbols that no longer exists. However, it seems like the last update was Aug. 15, 2019.

Is there a more recent version?

I was also wondering how often these files will be updated. I'm more interested in the options file.
