"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

I am running the following command:


And see the results below (I only paste the first few records). Why do I see missing TradeDate values, and trade time value of 999999? Can I assume these were not traded in the current day, and skip them? Are they trade updates?

One other question that applies to my original one as well...Why do we see trade dates other than the current date when using 5MS or the date specified with EDS?

I thought these API's are for the most recent trades on the current date or specified date.

In the market summary reports TradeDate and TradeTime are the most recent trade date/time for the symbol. This can be prior to today if the symbol has not traded today. Penny stocks and specific option symbols can trade infrequently, or not at all.

"999999" should no longer be a placeholder for date in the market summary reports. This was an old bug that has since been fixed, but it may persist in older reports, or for symbols that haven't been traded since the bug was fixed.
