"If you want customer service that answers the phone, your best bet is IQFeed. I cannot stop praising them or their technical support. They are always there for you, and they are quick. I have used ****** too but the best value is IQFeed." - Comment from Public Forum
"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger
"You are much better than lawyers or the phone company because you answer the phone when I call! I just love your customer service." - Comment from Isreal

"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim

Data and Content Support » SPX implied volatility Mar 12, 2012 12:15 PM (Total replies: 5)

that is the implied volatility of ATM options, which is different from the VIX, because any quote (on BID or ASK) can trigger a trade.
For the CBOE's VIX one would can put a quote deep out of the money just to get a higher/lower VIX. On page 6 of this document (www.cboe.com/micro/vix/vixwhite.pdf) you can find how the VIX is calculated and how deep OTM options can influence the VIX.
It would be great if DTN could offer a symbol for the SPX IV (which is the implied volatility of ATM options)

I was not referring to the VIX.
I attached the SPX implied volatility. Here is a print screen of the SPX implied volatility from InteractiveBrokers (last 2 days). You can see is very different from the VIX, which at one point today was -10%.
I would like to get this from your feed in order to render the graph in InvestorRT.

IQFeed Developer Wish List » put/call ratio Mar 10, 2012 05:10 PM (Total replies: 0)

I would be interested in the put/call "dolar weighted" ratio.
For example:lets consider 10$ calls for BAC are quoted for 1 cent and someone buys 1000. 8$ put on BAC goes for 25 cents and someone buys 50.

A normal put/call ratio is 50/1000 = 0.05
The put/call "dolar weighted" ratio is 12,5$/10$ = 1.25
