"I have been using IQFeed now for a few years in MultiCharts and I have zero complaints. Very, very rare to have any data hiccups or anything at all go wrong." - Comment from Public Forum
"I have to tell you though that using the IQFeed API is about the easiest and cleanest I have seen for some time." - Comment from Jim
"Its working FABULOUSLY for me!! Holy cow...there has been so much I've been missing lately, and with this feed and Linnsoft software...I'm in the game now." - Comment from Chris R.
"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 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
"This is an excellent value, the system is generous (allowing for 500 stocks) and stable (and really is tick-by-tick), and the support is fantastic." - Comment from Shirin via Email
"IQFeed version 4 is a real screamer compared to anything else I have seen." - Comment from Tom
"Version 4.0.0.2 has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.
"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
"After all the anxiety I had with my previous data provider it is a relief not to have to worry about data speed and integrity." - Comment from Eamonn

I am capturing level 2 data (TCP). I work under the assumption that the only way for a level 2 transactions to be canceled (ask or bid) is that a zero value be sent to the bid/bid size or the ask/ask size; or a replacement bid/bid size or ask/ask size.

At the end of the day I am left with maybe 10 to 15 unclosed u transactions on the ask side. Usually these exist on the ask side only, and they usually are less than 200 ask size quantity.

I am not checking reason code, condition code, bid info valid, or ask info valid. Are my assumptions correct so far?

The second part of the question when should I consider all transactions not accounted for as "no longer valid?". Should market close determine that... and should I be using the c<cr><lf> to trigger that in the 9200 TCP stream; or should I always expect a canceling "u" transaction?


I have both 2010 and 2005 working on Sockets C#... I must assume that you have the c# examples.... The first one to work on would be connect to iqfeed... using sockets... 9300 admin... then 5009 and then 9100... Once you get 1 socket... the rest will follow... the only difference is you will need to understand that pieces of data will come to you... and you will have to ensure they are together... email me if i can be of further help... i will do my best...


THE ABILITY TO SET THE FIELDS TO REDUCE PARSING... THE ABILITY TO GATHER TICK HISTORY.... ALL THE FUNCTIONALITY OF LOOKUP3.... THAT WOULD BE JUST WONDERFUL... IN THE INTERIM TIME... MAYBE SOMEONE CAN POST SOME MORE C# EXAMPLES... WHILE WAITING ON PRIORITIES FOR THIS ONE.... THANKS...


The OCX is very nice for folks who are not professional programmers. It easily allows me to drop a control on a program and be up and running within 5 minutes..

The inclusion of history.. and other non supported areas outside of level I would be a great benefit for folks like me... I have spent two days trying to include Com (to have ticks) inside a c# program and I'm still missing the boat somewhere...

Thank you for any consideration given to this topic.


New to the board as well as new to the developer side... Please include me in on the c# examples... I would love as many that exist... It's not that I'm Stoop..... Id... but the more ways I see something... the easier it is... and the ole saying... Don't try to re-invent the wheel... cause it still works!!!!!
