"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

"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

I am trying to figure out the meaning of the trade conditions reported in iqfeed prints.

For instance:

2023-03-27 15:43:58 0.55 2000 2009 0.51 0.57 569841655 C 16 AB

What is meaning of the code 'AB' reported in the last column of the above SWKS2321D125 times&sales?
Thanks in advance.

The API command STC will list all the trade conditions. The numbers in the STC ist are decimal, while the trade condition codes that appear the messages are hexadecimal. So you would have to convert AB to its decimal equivalent, and then see its meaning in the list. AB in hex is 171, which is:

LS,171,TLCT,OPRA - Stock Options Cross,

Thanks for your prompt and informative answer, Gary. Since I have just a subscription to tick data, but no API, would it be possible to get a printout of the STC command?
If I am breaking any rule with this request, please feel free to say so.
Thanks again for your help ad assistance.

arturo, if you don't have the API, we can only point you to the IQFeed apps found in the IQFeed Applications folder. You can view Trade Conditions via the Time & Sales, per tick view.
