"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
"This beats the pants off CQG, I am definitely switching to the ProphetX 3.0!" - Comment from Stephen
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"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
"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
"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
"DTN feed was the only feed that consistently matched Bloomberg feed for BID/ASK data verification work these past years......DTN feed is a must for my supply & demand based trading using Cumulative Delta" - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I'm satisfied with IQFeed. It's the most reliable and fastest quote feed I have ever used. Although I'm a resident in China, it's still very fast!" - Comment from Xiaofei
"I've never had DTN go out on me since switching. ******* would go down a couple times every month when I was using them." - Comment from Bryce in AL.

Does 5MS work for CBOT_GBX?

for example to collect a snapshot including the symbol @FFG24 these both do not work:

test,E,50007,No file available.

Gary answered this for me via email. 5MS,8,30 was the winning answer:

Five MS works for all exchanges (if you are subscribed to them), But you have to enter the exchange group number, not the exchange number. From the SLM command:

LS,111,CBOT_GBX,Chicago Board Of Trade (GLOBEX),30,CBOT,

You need:


30 is the Exchange Group number. Change 8 to the symbol type you want (from SST command). The response will also return other "group 30" symbols,but the response includes the specific exchange number so you can filter them that way.

Yes, you should use the SLM command (send to port 9100) to know the exchange group number for the exchange you are interested in. Then use that number (not the exchange number at the beginning of the line) with the EDS/FDS/5MS commands.
