"I am enjoying the feed very much - so superior to the broker provided feed I was previously using." - Comment from George
"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
"There is no doubt that IQFeed is the best data provider. I am very satisfied with your services. And IQFeed is the only one that I would recommend to my friends. Now, most of them are using your product in China." - Comment from Zhezhe
"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
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"I've been using IQFeed 4 in a multi-threaded situation for the last week or two on 2600 symbols or so with 100 simultaneous daily charts, and I have had 100% responsiveness." - Comment from Scott
"Very impressed with the quality of your feed - ******* is a real donkey in comparison." - Comment from A.C. via Email
"Thank you so much - awesome feed, awesome service!" - Comment from Greg via Email
"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"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

Hi Gary,

This is good to know!
So does the same situation apply to close prices in equities (i.e one must have the Close field).

When I do a HIT request on @VXJ23, on the second of February 2023 the downloaded ticks are out of order.
At around 10:54:04 the time jumps backward.

Here are the lines as they come in:

In general - can we expect tick data to be in-order?

IQFeed API Questions » c & s update Message Contents. Jul 28, 2023 01:54 PM (Total replies: 28)

This is simply a grep of the log on the pattern 'Q,@VXMQ23'.
So unless the 'missing' events have a different form, they should be here.
Aren't the missing gaps in the numbers because of the other symbols I'm watching?

IQFeed API Questions » c & s update Message Contents. Jul 27, 2023 02:10 PM (Total replies: 28)

So they are not there right?
So do you plan to add them or was it all a misunderstanding?

IQFeed API Questions » c & s update Message Contents. Jul 26, 2023 03:11 PM (Total replies: 28)

OK - So here is the grepped logging for @VXMQ23 for today. I see no 's' or 'c' in the message contents on a cursory look - but I may be missing something.

IQFeed API Questions » c & s update Message Contents. Jul 26, 2023 02:01 PM (Total replies: 28)

I'm running with logging today - the file is huge - I will grep it down to the @VXMQ23 quotes around the close before sending.

BTW - What is the rule for requesting historical futures tick data? How far back can I go with requests on @VXMQ23? How far back can I go with any arbitrary futures symbol.

IQFeed API Questions » c & s update Message Contents. Jul 25, 2023 12:36 PM (Total replies: 28)

Yes - but this is in the time & sales data right?
I'm pretty sure I'm not seeing them in the realtime Q message stream.

As before - I see c & s messages for the day before, usually with a burst of F messages.
But I see nothing for the current day at around 4 est.

IQFeed API Questions » c & s update Message Contents. Jul 21, 2023 03:11 PM (Total replies: 28)

I'm just not seeing any 'c' or 's' events in the real-time Q messages around 4 est.
I'm seeing them coming through for the previous day before the market opens, so I know I'm logging them correctly, but nothing at the close.

I see the close in the time & sales trade conditions for equities but not for futures.
I think we're missing each other here - I will be in contact next week.

I'll not seeing them - but the fault must be on my side.
Thanks for the clarification.

IQFeed API Questions » c & s update Message Contents. Jul 20, 2023 01:42 PM (Total replies: 28)

Sorry to belabour the point - but to make sure I understand.

Equities will have an Q event with a 'c' in the message contents at around 4 est?

(Thanks for the telnet explanation - I think it also helps to connect to the historical port! :))

Hi Gary,

I rang into into another data thing.
On this day there is a gap in the data for some reason:

Thanks Gary - how are you issuing those commands?
When I try via telnet my output is swamped with timestamps etc.

Edit more questions:
1. So these events will appear with trade condition 's' in the real-time stream?
2. How do I identify a equities close in real-time?
