"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

I have two issues related to acquiring option chains for QQQ, with a command such as:
OEC,QQQ,0,0; via the TCP interface to port 9100.

1) The number of put or call options is artificially limited to 255, when there are more available.
2) The "nears" option (which I assume narrows down the returned symbols to those whose strike prices are near the current equity price) does not appear to do anything.

Thanks for clarifying these two issues for me.

Ryan

Ryan,
We do not limit symbols to 255. However I am not ruling out the possibility that all the symbols are not being returned. I will be able to verify this after some testing on my end. I was able to verify that the nears option is currently inactive. We are working to fix this.

Did you mean to say that you are not ruling out this possibility?

Ryan,

I am not able to recreate the issue of symbols being limited to 255. What version are you on, and can you still recreate this? Thanks!
