"I've been using Neoticker RT with IQFeed for two months, and I'm very happy with both of the products (I've had IQFeed for two years with very few complaints). The service from both companies is exceptional." - Comment from Public Forum
"This beats the pants off CQG, I am definitely switching to the ProphetX 3.0!" - Comment from Stephen
"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger
"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
"As a past ******* customer(and not a happy one), IQ Feed by DTN is a much better and cheaper product with great customer support. I have had no problems at all since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum

Due to inadequacies in the Level 1 futures data feed from IB, we are considering implementing a feed from IQ. However, there are several concerns which I hope you can answer before we embark upon this feed enhancement. The required feeds are VERY specific and concurrent symbols are very limited, however it appears the cost may be significant to the end-user client.

1) What is the simplest most straightforward method which a standalone Java application client must use to get tick by tick realtime feed from Globex and eCBOT? Is this a local host socket connection approach? What's the "software architecture" on the client system to which my standalone java app would connect for the feed? Would multiple instances of my client on the same system attach to a single server or just how does it work?

2) COST: For a maximum of 3 concurrent symbols, say YM (ecbot), ZG (ecbot), ER2 (Globex) what would be the least-cost monthly fee to my clients for a realtime "level one" feed ONLY, not necessary to have "market depth / level 2", just an accurate near realtime bid/ask with size and trade price and size stream for this very limited number of symbols?

If my clients are going to have to pay in the range of $100 or more to be able to get realtime feeds from ecbot, globex primarily; then I am not sure how cost-effective this enhancement will be.

Thanks a lot... I'm strongly attracted to using this excellent feed, but concerned about the cost to my clients.
