"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 just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"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
"Thank you so much - awesome feed, awesome service!" - Comment from Greg via Email
"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

"You have an excellent feed. Very few spikes for Spot Forex." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I just wanted to let you know how fast and easy I found it to integrate IQFeed into our existing Java code using your JNI client. In my experience, such things almost never go so smoothly - great job!" - Comment from Nate

SPX options quotes did not start flowing until about 12:05 AM EST on January 29 (5 minutes after midnight early Monday) even though the options market was trading well before that time.
Likewise, there are no SPX options quotes coming in at the present time, 8:30 PM EST (7:30 CT), even though the SPX options market is currently trading.
There are no "Q" = update messages coming in.

Any information that could shed light on this would be helpful.

Thank you for your comment.

I don't know if these forums are being monitored by the DTN staff?

It has been 5 days since my question was posted, and no reply from DTN support yet.

Best wishes.

Hi again. Thanks for your comment. I will wait as you suggest, and hopefully they will give a reply.

It seems the IQfeed SPX options feed starts at about 12:05 AM New York time, after midnight.

Best Regards

Do you know which specific SPX option symbol(s) it was?

High Gary. Thanks for responding.

The options that IQfeed was not broadcasting from 8 PM until midnight (NY time), that were referred to in my original post were for the SPXW options for the 30 nearest strikes for both Puts and Calls that expired on January 30th (when I originally made my forum post on January 29th, 2024) -- so they would have been the next day's expiry options.

These are liquid options, and most of the prices are updated quite often between 8 PM until midnight (NY time) at the exchanges. However I observed zero updates on any of the options chain until the updates started flowing at 5 minutes past midnight (NY time).

Today, the equivalent would be these symbols (I have listed only the Puts for brevity) that expire tomorrow, Feb 13th:
