"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

Right now it seems that we can use the IEOptions file that lists all the previous options symbols. The problem with that is it requires the file to be downloaded separately and it is not updated very often.
So, it would be really nice if that was an API that was kept up to date and could be queried like the current OptionChain Lookup or even just to allow the current calls to look backward instead of only forward.

Also, I have submitted a formal request that this functionality be added to the Option Chains API. We will notify you when there is any further news on it.

Current estimate is June or July.

Our current priority is to complete the data servers move before we can focus our attention on these files.

Once we complete the data server move I have been assured that the file updates are next to be completed.

Unfortunately I do not have an ETA on this.
