IQFeed Developer Support » Historical OHLC bars for quotes (bid/ask)? Mar 15, 2017 08:35 AM (Total replies: 2)

Good morning,

Unfortunately, IQFeed does not store any historical bid or ask data within it's systems, but we do have other products with this type of data available for a one time purchase to supplement your usage, if you would like to talk about purchasing this kind of data just let me know and I can have someone is sales reach out to you.


Good morning.

The next time this occurs, before restarting, can you please check in your Docs\DTN\IQFeed\ directory and send me the IQConnectLog.txt file and any .dmp files that are located there to the developer email address?

Thanks for sharing!


IQFeed Developer Support » Getting Started with API Mar 6, 2017 01:41 PM (Total replies: 1)


There is nothing that needs or can be included as a reference for our API. You simply need to create a socket to whatever interface you would like and then it is just a matter of sending strings back and forth across the sockets via TCP.

There are no functions as you may be used to seeing with a rest api.


Good afternoon,

I know there were issues reported where Microsoft's decision to remove MBCS for MFC from the default Visual Studio project caused issues. I found a link below that tells how to re-enable this. I don't know that it is related to your issue, but it sounds like ot may be worth a try.


DTN.IQ Client Software Support » Login incorrect message. Mar 1, 2017 08:47 AM (Total replies: 1)

Good morning,

I think I have this resolved for now while I do some research into what happened here.

Let me know if your issue persists.


IQFeed Developer Support » IQConnect start Feb 28, 2017 01:21 PM (Total replies: 4)

For an open source project it won't work, nor do I think you want it to. If your product ID was used by someone else to do something not in line with the terms of service, it could result in the product ID being deactivated which would impact all of your potential users.

In the case of an open source project, you would want other potential users to have their own product ids. There are several of these projects online currently and to my knowledge they all require a product ID to be entered by the end user before they will function.


IQFeed Developer Support » IQConnect start Feb 28, 2017 12:56 PM (Total replies: 4)

Yes, that is perfectly fine, just compile your product ID into the code so it is not in the clear. If you were looking to do an open source app, that is when you would want to remove your ID before publishing it.

Great, thanks for the assist. We'll get them taken care of asap.


Data and Content Support » Historical data issues - GLTR Feb 23, 2017 01:48 PM (Total replies: 4)

My apologies, it looks like we have gotten that corrected now across our servers so please, let me know if anything still seems amiss on your end.


Data and Content Support » Historical data issues - GLTR Feb 23, 2017 11:38 AM (Total replies: 4)

Well that does not appear ideal....

I'll get that over to our data team for their review.


Hello, Welcome to the forums. It looks like some of your parameters are out of order.

If you check this page, it has all of the details, or just drop into developer chat and I would be happy to explain it more in depth.

All messages are sent as csv strings. Once you have signed up for the API you can access samples for all requests and returns as well as sample code.


IQFeed Developer Support » api tied to windows? Feb 3, 2017 03:04 PM (Total replies: 13)

Yes, a key is required. We do not support json or xml.

The concern I see is not so much that, it is the exchange requirements associated with how you are using the data, but those are things that you and the sales team can discuss more should you decide to come back to us. Thanks again for the interest though in either case.


IQFeed Developer Support » api tied to windows? Feb 3, 2017 02:36 PM (Total replies: 13)

I don't think IQFeed will work for your needs, but I will escalate your request and we will examine what options we have available for you.

IQFeed does require WINE, or an emulator service, to run on a Linux or Mac machine. Our Mac installer packages WINE with the installer to make this process easier for you.


IQFeed Developer Support » Link problem Jan 18, 2017 02:08 PM (Total replies: 6)

I'd be happy to. I think it would be worthwhile to chat about this together. If you log into the developer website there is a link to initiate a chat on the left hand side. If you can go there and initiate a chat, I would be happy to discuss getting you from where you are to where you want to go at length.
