Thanks, made my sector chart look ugly. I note that Yahoo still shows it down 80+, guess they are delayed.

Oops, I see that Yahoo also shows a big loss. Is this due to Motorola split?

DTN.IQ Client Software Support » Feed Running Slow Nov 9, 2010 01:01 PM (Total replies: 4)

OK, it could be internet related, noticed that feed stopped a couple of times. The computer load was heavy, 70 to 80 percent on a 4 processor machine. Will let you know right away if it happens again.

I noticed this morning that the feed was running 5 minutes behind for quite awhile.
The Dow30 stocks, the INDU.X and your VINT.Z were all running around 5 min late.
I'm on server 156.225. It's normal now.

DTN.IQ Client Software Support » IQLink Comsumes GDI Objects Oct 6, 2010 06:09 PM (Total replies: 10)

Ran some more tests:
1. Ran same setup on laptop, Win7 32bit. Had IQ ver 4403. Same result.
Kept increasing even after Calc shut down.
2. Ran Win XP on desktop. Had IQ ver 4607. Started w/ 17 GDI. When window opened
started increasing. Kept increasing after oo Calc shutdown.
3. Downloaded IQ ver 4720. Still on XP. Same w/ oo Calc.
4. Went back to Win7 64 bit.
Tried running similar app using Quatro Pro 8 spreadsheet.
Still increases when Link window opened.

Looks like it's not tied to oo Calc (I don't have Excel) but the older Quattro Pro is different than Calc. Also it's there in previous versions of IQFeed.
I don't have Vista (thank goodness!)

Perhaps it's the climate in Hawaii? Windows grow better here.

Interesting. I have Win7 32 bit on my laptop but I don't want to try it now since I'll interupt the IQFeed now on the 64 bit machine. This afternoon I'll see what happens on the laptop and post it here.

As long as I don't open the IQLink window all is fine.

Would be hard to send my sheet, here's what I tried:
1. Start IQLink, noted that there were 16 GDI.
2. Opened blank oo calc sheet.
3. In col B2 typed =DDE("IQLink";$A2;B$1)
4. In row 1 put Last Change Volume
5 in Col A put in a partial list of SP400 symbols
6. Copied B2 to all other slots. Have about 50 symbols with values in them
7. Opened IQLink window.\
8. GDI now increasing at about 1 per second, maybe slower than my sheet.

I'm running Win 7 Professional 64 bit with 2.2G 4 core processor, 8 GB mem.

Can you duplicate using oo Calc? I don't have Excel on this machine.

Oops, I should have mentioned that I closed the window immediatly.

It's still increasing, now up to 172, window definitely closed.

I tried shutting all down, then starting IQLink. It came up with 16 GDI Objects.
I then started the spreadsheet and clicked on update links. I didnot bring up the window that shows the connections as I usually do. The GDI stayed at 16, the User Objects went up to 1776. Although it's after hours, some data is coming in and it's still stable at 16 GDI.

I opened the IQLink Statistics window and the GDI is now increasing at about 1 per second.

Hopefully, that should be easy for the programmers to find. In the meantime, I'll be careful to not open that window.

Let me know what happens.

Yes, why GDI is used is a good question. It starts with 16 then increases slowly one by one. I thought it might have something to do with Quotetracker running, but I ran only the spreadsheet and it does the same thing.

Eventually I have to stop the spreadsheet, kill IQLink, then start over. Annoying!

I'm running IQ Feed 4713 with IQ Link. I also have Quote Tracker running. IQLink feeds data to an Open Office spreadsheet using DDE. When Link starts it is using 16 GDI's. It gradually increases GDI's to a very large value (4,000 or more), slowing down the operation of Windows 7 64bit. User Objects also increases.

I currently have 279 symbols active. Any ideas on what is happening?

Data and Content Support » S&P Premium Sep 7, 2010 05:01 PM (Total replies: 7)

One more question, the S&P Midcap premium PRMD.Z is now showing -4.02 and has been showing that most of the day.

The future, MDU10, is showing 762.50 and the index is 755.10, a difference of -7.40.

Can you tell me how the premium is calculated?

It matches fine now, I'm showing both at -0.44. During the active sesstion, however, they would differ by a fair amount. Maybe this is because the index is real-time and the futures are delayed? If so, then you are using the real-time future to do the calc?

Data and Content Support » S&P Premium Sep 7, 2010 02:40 PM (Total replies: 7)

I'm curious about your calculation of SP-PREM.Z (the S&P500 premium). My assumption is that it should be the last of the most active future (this seems to be SPU10 minus the index. I;m watching this and it's not the same as SP-PREM.Z.

Is my asumption not correct?

Data and Content Support » 3rd Mkt $ Vol May 27, 2010 07:52 PM (Total replies: 1)

Does anyone have a reason for the high $ volume on the NASD 3rd mkt?
Symbol is DIOT.Z on Interquote and it hit 326 billion today, far higher than I've ever seen it.
My understanding is 3rd mkt is trading among mkt makers directly.

Today DIKTl.Z (NASDAQ OTHER OTC ISSUES $ VOL TOTAL) registered $145,380,846 while all other mkts totaled only $116,567,958.

Must be some new OTC stock that really jumped?

Again there seems to be something wrong with the London PM gold fix. I'm getting from you 906.75 which is way out of line with the futures. Also other sources are show it as 883.
