"I just wanted to let u know that your data feed/service is by far the best!!! Your unfiltered tick data is excellent for reading order flow and none of your competitors delivers this quality of data!" - Comment from Peter via Email
"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
"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
"I started a trial a few weeks back before the market went wild. DTN.IQ didn’t miss anything and beat my other provider. I decided to stay with you because of the great service through all the volatility." - Comment from Mike
"I was with ******* for 4 years at $230 a month, this is a huge savings for me, GOD BLESS YOU PEOPLE," - Comment from T.S. via Email
"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"I'm very glad I switched to IQFeed. It's working perfectly with no lag, even during fast market conditions." - Comment from Andy via Email
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton
"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
"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

My software is able to connect to retrieve historical data, but cannot connect to quote servers:


I wanted to post here to alert someone at IQFeed.

Is this a planned outage? If so, it would be really great if you could announce it somewhere so that your customers don't spend a couple hours diagnosing the problem, pulling their hair out, etc.

If this is an unplanned outage, can you please investigate? I know it's Easter, but instruments start trading tonight in the overnight sessions, and I want to make sure everything will work.

Hi Matthew,

I also started getting the disconnections around 10 PM Eastern Time on Saturday (April 15). I haven't been able to resolve it as of yet on my end and haven't changed anything on my end.

Background Info
I was hoping it would be working better this morning, but it isn't. I'm using the TCP/IP connection and receive the proper S,KEYOK<LF> response after connecting but after about 30 seconds, I get a disconnection and then the system reconnects. Historical requests seem to normally go through fine, but they sometimes get aborted as well.

So . . . it looks like something has changed on the IQFeed side of things.

Our ops group is looking into this and it should be resolved shortly.

I've been connected for 12 minutes without a disconnect so far, so whatever you are doing is helping.

I've been connected for over an hour without a disconnect, so from my viewpoint, the problem has been solved.

Thanks Jay et al!
