"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

Hi,

In the Update Message, what is the date of the close value (Close field) ?
For the settle there is a "Settlement Date" field but not for the Close.
Is there any logic I can apply to find the close date ?

Hello! This is Gary from DTN.

As far as I know, there's not a field for a close date and time. Close is always just the closing price of the day (or for commodities, the last trade of the session). There is a Last Date and Last Time, which when the market is closed would reflect the most recent trade. Can you tell me more about what you're looking to do, and I can maybe put together a suggestion from other available data?

Sincerely,
Gary Stephen

Hello Gary,

I am working on a position keeping software. it allows user to add to his position any security from any market.
for each security in position I want to feed the software with the following informations (among ohters):
Close,settle (if applicable),date.
for exemple,
for CAQ19 :

date | close | Settle
2019-8-20 | 150.2 | 150.2
2019-8-21 | 154.2 | 154.1
2019-8-22 | 155.1 | 154.9
......

the date is the market local date. I mean if the market close the 2019-8-20 at 19:00:00 even if my local date at the same moment is 2019-8-19 or 2019-8-21 this must not have an impact.

these data are stored and used to valuate the position (p&l,greeks...) and to compute the Value at Risk.

there is no need for me to listen to the feed for tick by tick data. So I made a batch that takes a snapshot (subscribe/unsubscribe) nearly each hour; for each security I get the UpdateMessage, now I want to store the close and the date in my table (in case of new close).

exemple, I get this :
close= 150.2
Last Date= 2019-8-20
Last Time= 17:40:02

how to know if the close belong to 2019-8-20 or 2019-8-19 or even 2019-8-21 (in case there was no trades for 1 or 2 days) ?
