Data Questions » ABNB Intraday for 2023-02-14 Offset by 1 Hour Feb 12, 2024 11:22 AM (Total replies: 4)

After refreshing my data cache, everything appears to be correct now.
Thanks for checking on it.

Data Questions » ABNB Intraday for 2023-02-14 Offset by 1 Hour Feb 8, 2024 07:55 AM (Total replies: 4)

The EST timestamps for ABNB 1-min and 5-min interval data for 2023-02-14 is advanced by 1 hour. In other words the data showing at 0830 ET is the market opening and the close is at 1500.

The offset appears in 1-minute and 5-minute intervals, but not using 15 or 30-minute intervals. There's your proof.

Note that there's a large run up on high volume in the after market session that day.

This makes a big difference for that day. Can you correct it please?

Thanks for the clarification. Indeed, I'm using 6.1 so I'll have to keep this in mind for the next upgrade. Thanks again.

Daily data is incorrect for stocks whose High or Low price for the day was hit in the first few minutes of the session.

Examples (just 2 of hundreds) -

RCL - Low was 85.86, but the Daily bar Low is 86.00
RE - High was 346.58, but the Daily bar High is 346.26

IQFeed API Questions » Option Chain Response missing "LC" May 23, 2023 06:17 AM (Total replies: 2)

The doc here: http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/OptionChainsviaTCPIP.cfm indicates that the response to any of the requests for option chains will have "a field containing the letters LC". We expect to see LC as the first field unless a RequestID is specified, and in that case LC would be the second token.

Nonetheless in response to the request, LC is nowhere to be found in the response.
CEO,CSCO,pc,FGHJKMNQUVXZ,,,,,4,1

Response...
6,CSCO2302F30,CSCO2302F35,CSCO2302F36,CSCO2302F37,CSCO2302F38,...

I don't care if LC is there or not, but I just want to know that it will never be there. Will it?

Finally, another image attached highlighting that the first 1048 bar occasionally is wrong, completely missing the first 78 minutes of data and instead appears to insert data for the 1-min of premarket trading prior to 0930. The data shown were part of the response to this request:

It's only 2AM EST, but the data returned for the same request has changed (and is now correct).

New IQFeed Forum » 78-Minute Bar alignment Dec 13, 2022 03:47 PM (Total replies: 5)

For that request, is it misleading that IQFeed timestamps the bars in the way that [appears to] use a 0930 start? If the (ending) timestamp of the 78-minute bar is 10:48, then that implies that it's the 78-minutes of data from 0930 to 1048 - yet that is not the case (today).

I had a hunch that paid off. I rescaled IQFeed 1-minute data and compared the result to the 78-minute bars returned from IQFeed. As it turns out, using the request above, IQFeed uses the 0930 filter time as a start reference. The problem is that it doesn't do that for the current day!

See the attached image that makes this comparison. Except for occasional - but significant - differences on [usually] the 1048 bar, the bars are identical prior to "today". My guess is that when I request the ABBV 78 minute bars tomorrow, they'll be different than they are today. That's not good.

New IQFeed Forum » 78-Minute Bar alignment Dec 13, 2022 01:01 PM (Total replies: 5)

When requesting odd-intervals, like 13 or 78 minute bars (both of which divide evenly into a 390-minute day), what is the correct way to identify the starting time for the data compression?

For example, if you start at midnight, 78 minute bar end-of-bar timestamps for bars that contain data for the U.S. market regular session would be (in bold):
01:18
02:36
03:54
05:12
06:30
07:48
09:06
10:24
11:42
13:00
14:18
15:36
16:54

18:12
19:30

However, I need bar data aligned with the 09:30 market open whose end-of-bar times are:
10:48:00
12:06:00
13:24:00
14:42:00
16:00:00

Specifying 0930 and 1600 for the HIT filter times returns bars with the correct timestamps. e.g.,
HIT,ABBV,4680,20221213 000000,20221215 000000,,093000,160000,1,3,,s,0
20221213 10:48 166.92 167.16 165.62 166.06 417,761
20221213 12:06 166.05 166.06 164.71 164.99 394,991

HOWEVER, inspecting the 1-minute data (always referring to end-of-bar timestamps), the OPEN for ABBV today's 09:31 bar was 166.95 - not 166.92 as indicated in the 78-minute bar data.

More strikingly, the 1-min bar close at 10:48 is 166.41 - not 166.06. Note that the bar ending at 10:17 closed at 166.06 - the only 1 minute bar to close at that price before 10:48.

What's going on with this data compression?
What's IQFeed's guidance on how to do this correctly?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, the data guys got the ex-date wrong. It's today 04/23/2021, not 04/22/2021. Can you get them to adjust that, please?

Update:
Disregard the split in 2017. That one was for the previous VXX series, which was delisted.

New IQFeed Forum » missing split event? Apr 23, 2021 12:46 PM (Total replies: 24)

I'm looking at both! You should know me by now ;)

I understand that only Daily is adjusted by IQFeed. We use the Fundamental message to adjust our intraday data too.

Hi again!
VXX reverse split 1:4 today, 04/23/2021

And, the Fundamental string isn't returned the penultimate split either - 1:4 on 08/23/2017:

Data Questions » What's Different for Index (VIX.XO) Level 1? Apr 22, 2021 11:24 AM (Total replies: 2)

A customer is having trouble with streaming data for Indices, like VIX.XO and VIX3M.XO. From the description, there appear to be no updates, which are expected at least every 15 seconds for these instruments.

Is it possible that these are updated only as a "P" Summary message? (Our Dev feed doesn't have perms for these indices.)

Yes! Getting it now, thanks.

FNGU is still missing its recent 10:1 split event on 2/12/2021. Can you add that to the Fundamental message, please?

(The Daily data are adjusted, but we need that Split event to adjust the intraday properly.)

If it's turned on, you'll get an incomplete BU message whenever a new tick has a trade in it.

.. but you'll get that message only after the Update Interval. Sure, we can put that at 1 second and have at most a 1 second delay, which is acceptable, but it certainly complicates the adapter. Instead of just passing along the final result when it arrives, we'll have store the last BU message, and, if the BC message doesn't come in before 1 second after the interval, we use the last BU data, and, later have to ignore the next BC message. Not joy, but it is what it is.
