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.

We are aware of emails sent out by Telvent DTN with the following message:

"We are going to be upgrading our servers in the near future & the version of IQ you are using may not be compatible with the new server sets, and will no longer work."

The emails don't give any details of the impending Server upgrades nor which versions of IQFeed will be compatible. I did reply to one of the emails but got no response. It would be very helpful if you could answer the following:

1) When are the Server upgrades planned?
2) Which versions of IQFeed will be compatible with the new servers?

Dennis, thanks for the questions.

The change should only affect historical data. All versions of IQFeed older than 4.5 should no longer be able to retrieve history once the changes are made.

There is no definate cut-off date yet set for this change. There are still a couple of details outside the realm of IQFeed users that have to be addressed. Meanwhile we are pro-actively contacting customers who are still using older versions in an effort to get them to upgrade (or find out exactly why they wont).
