"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum
"Thank God for your Data Feed as the only Zippers I see are on my pants (LOL), and no more 200 pip spikes to mess up charts." - Comment from Spiro via Email
"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
"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
"Can I get another account from you? I am tired of ******* going down so often" - Comment from George
"For anyone considering using DTN.IQ for a data feed, my experience with the quality of data and the tech support has been very positive." - Comment from Public Forum
"I am enjoying the feed very much - so superior to the broker provided feed I was previously using." - Comment from George
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam
"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
"This beats the pants off CQG, I am definitely switching to the ProphetX 3.0!" - Comment from Stephen

Are dividend data still being updated within the fundamental data for ETFs?

Just one example (but there are many):

Symbol = DIA
The last dividend pay date shown by IQFeed fundamental data is 5/16/2011, but two monthly dividends have come and gone since then, with no dividend information being updated in the fundamental data. Same applies for SPY (one dividend missing) and other ETFs as well.

Has something changed in the way dividend data is being returned?

We are looking into this.

Missing dividend problems continue. For example (and this is just one; there apparently are many) is the latest dividend for symbol TLT. July dividends have been declared and paid, and still there is no update in the fundamental data.

Dividend data was working great for years; now many many dividends are just not being recorded. Is there any plan to resolve this?

Matthew, my apologies for not following up previously. We switched to a new feed from our fundamental data provider which did not include dividends for ETFs. We are working with the provider to get this data from another feed but until that happens, ETF dividend information will not update.
