Data Questions » identifying weekly options vs others Apr 13, 2023 01:43 PM (Total replies: 2)

I believe that the "Include Non-Standard" parameter controls inclusion/exclusion of binary options as well as weekly options. I'm not aware of a way to exclude only weekly options without also excluding binary options. This is of course a moot point in case the specified underlying has no binary options.

Note: as far as I know, weekly options are excluded by default only with IQFeed client 6.1 or newer, whereas binary options are excluded by default on older clients as well.

New IQFeed Forum » Connecting to IQFeed data freezes NinjaTrader Apr 13, 2023 03:07 AM (Total replies: 3)

Another solution that does not require disabling Logitech's Ghub is to change IQFeed's LookupPort from 9100 to some other number that is not used by any other program on your computer (e.g. 9110). You can do this by modifying the LookupPort value in the Windows registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DTN\IQFeed\Startup), using Windows' Registry Editor program. If IQConnect is running, you will need to restart it for the new value to take effect.

IQFeed Developer Support » How to create bar from tick data Feb 13, 2023 11:57 AM (Total replies: 22)

Quote: So 10:40 to 10:45 would include 10:45:00.999999

I think you meant that 10:40 to 10:45 would include 10:44:59.999999, not 10:45:00.999999, otherwise the following bar will include overlapped data with this bar (trades that occurred in the first second of 10:45:00) and this will cause data inconsistencies.

SPX.XO is not a regular stock ticker but a CBOE index (see https://ws1.dtn.com/IQ/Guide/indices_cboe.html) - you need to subscribe to CBOE Indices in your DTN account.

Data Questions » Historical Pre-Market Volume Jun 18, 2022 12:51 PM (Total replies: 14)

Quote: Firstly, thanks for all of your help with this Gary. Secondly, love your last update - great idea! To confirm, will it always choose the latest tick in the range? Also, am I correct in thinking that for a multi-day request like 06/15 to 06/16, it will only pick the latest across all days, or would it return the latest per day? (if the former I can just use python to cycle through each day).

Coming back to the main problem, here's the summary of what I'm seeing...
If I update my message to send an OLD protocol like 5.1...

message = "S,SET PROTOCOL,5.1\r\nHTT,%s,20220615 000000,20220616 130000,,092900,092959\n" % sym 


... then I get a good response back: S,CURRENT PROTOCOL,5.1 - plus I get all of the info for GOOG (still testing, but specifying an old protocol seems to be working). However if I take this exact same code and the only change I make is to update the protocol from 5.1 to 6.2, then it gets weird. A) I get this error response: E,6.2 is not a valid protocol. B) I now get 1 row of data for GOOG back (before specifying protocol, I used to get 0 rows back). This feels super weird - sending 6.2 is getting an error, but at the same time it is meaning I get 1 row of data for GOOG vs 0 rows of data.

All in all, one request I'd love to make if possible would be to add a basic sample code for Python to the IQ Developer Support section. I know a lot of experienced devs use C++ & Java, but Python is quite a common entry level language so hoping it could be supported to a MVP level like opening a socket, setting protocol, submitting a request (to take off the table situations like this when I'm wondering if its my coding or the system - for this it looks like a problem with the system, both with GOOG data responding differently and with accepting the latest protocol incorrectly).

Will crack on with trying to get it working using the old 5.1 approach, and loop back if no joy (but please shout if you already know there'll be an issue with using the old protocol).

Thanks again for your help Gary, really appreciate it!

To use protocol 6.2, you must of course install the IQFeed 6.2 client. If for example you only have a 6.0 client, then you will not be able to use the 6.1 or 6.2 protocols, only 6.0 or older.
You can download the latest IQFeed client from http://www.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?displayaction=support§ion=download

Mark - you have 2 bugs in your code:
1. The symbol name needs to be in UPPERCASE, i.e. "AAPL" not "aapl"
2. The IncludeNonStandardOptions parameter needs to be 0 or 1 (not "F")

See http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/OptionChainsviaTCPIP.cfm

Note that the parameters order in the CEO command changed in protocol 6.1, so if you need to support earlier protocol versions you need to change the parameters order accordingly.

You probably have a non-IQFeed process on that computer that uses the same port number (Lookup=9100 by default). Run `netstat -on` to see which process it is and then either stop that process, or modify the Lookup port number in the Windows registry.

Perhaps you are sending the request to the Level1 port instead of to the Lookup port.

Perhaps you connect to IQFeed without setting a protocol version (S,SET PROTOCOL,6.1 for example); in such a case IQFeed uses the default (older) protocol version, which does not understand the EDS command.

During regular US trading hours (9:30-16:30 US Eastern time), only 8 days of ticks data is available. Outside trading hours you can receive up to 180 days of data.

This field in the S,CUST message indicates the latest official version of IQFeed, which is currently 6.1.0.20. Remember that 6.2 is still in beta mode and not the officially supported version [yet]. Simply run the S,SET PROTOCOL,6.2 after you receive this message and you should be ok. You will see that the 6.2 protocol is used by an incoming S,CURRENT PROTOCOL,6.2 message. Note that you need to repeat this protocol setting for all ports, not just the Admin port.

Are you certain that when you initially connect to IQFeed you specify S,SET PROTOCOL,6.2 in *ALL* the connection ports?

IQFeed Developer Support » Multiple Interval Watches on same symbol Oct 9, 2021 03:47 PM (Total replies: 1)

You can specify a unique RequestID (8th parameter after the BW) for each separate BW request (for example: IBM-1s, IBM-5s, IBM-30s). This will be reported at the beginning of each incoming message from IQFeed. You could parse the incoming RequestID and use the parsed components in your code logic.

Note: setting multiple overlapping BW requests per symbol is sub-optimal and will likely inundate your program with multiple duplicate messages. I think that it would be better to only request 1sec BW intervals, and to aggregate the bars in your program logic. This would probably be more efficient than to separately process multiple duplicate interval messages.

IQFeed API Questions » Question regarding streaming Oct 8, 2021 08:20 AM (Total replies: 3)

In your BW command to start the streaming, set the UpdateInterval field (which is the 11th field after the BW) to any integer value >= 0 (e.g. 1), to specify the max number of seconds before a bar update message is sent from IQFeed, even when no trade has occurred.

IQFeed API Questions » HWX, HMX May 25, 2021 08:00 AM (Total replies: 4)

You're probably using an old version of the IQFeed client (IQConnect), version 6.0 or older - these versions used fewer parameters (the IncludePartialDatapoint parameter was added in client version 6.1). Simply install the latest IQFeed client and this problem will probably be resolved.

Data Questions » How do I get real-time options greeks using web sockets? Feb 21, 2021 02:48 AM (Total replies: 7)

For the volatility value you can use the Historical_Volatility field from the underlying asset's fundamental data. DTN's official description of this field is: “30-trading day volatility, calculated using Black-Scholes”. Apparently, the actual calculation (which is updated once a day, after midnight) for options computes the volatility of day-to-day price change values of the last 30 trading days, using the last 31 daily close prices, as follows:
100*sqrt(252)*std(ln(close(i+1)/close(i)))
, rounded to the nearest 0.01. For futures, the calculation is similar but apparently based on 90 (not 30) values. When a contract is newly-listed, fewer values are used, with a minimum of 4 values.

You can also calculate the historic volatility yourself, using historic prices of the underlying asset (use IQFeed's historic bars query for this). In this case, you can use a different number of historic prices for the calculation, ignore outlier values etc., without relying on DTN's built-in opaque calculation.

As an alternative to using the historic volatility, you can also calculate the implied volatility using Black-Scholes. This will typically be easier for European derivatives than for American/Asian/exotic ones.

In my IQML connector I enable the user to choose whether to use IQFeed's built-in Historical_Volatility field, or a calculated Implied Volatility, or a fixed value.

For the risk-free rate, you can either set a fixed rate (in the current financial situation, a simple value of 0 may be close enough for practical purposes), or use the current value of assets such as LIBOR/IRX.XO.

See http://forums.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=4387 for some detailed discussion of these matters.

I do not believe that IQFeed has a dedicated query for requesting greeks, nor are the greeks reported by IQFeed in the standard market-data query.

Some of the software that connects to IQFeed (for example, my IQML connector for Matlab) calculate the greeks internally and report them to the user. If you are developing your own program, you can calculate the greeks using the information reported for the options and their underlying asset, and the standard Mathematical definitions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greeks_(finance).

IQFeed API Questions » Questions about api Dec 28, 2020 10:09 AM (Total replies: 5)

For the benefit of anyone who happens across this thread, note that on Dec. 22, 2020 DTN has changed the throttling mechanism for historical data queries: instead of the old limit on the number of concurrent connections, the new limit is on the number of queries within a rolling 1-second window (50 queries/sec).

References:

There is currently no known throttling limitation on other types of IQFeed queries (non-historical).
