I'm not as up to speed on Docker as I should be.

That said, there is a way to get this working on a headless machine. I followed the instructions here and have it running on a headless machine. I did need to install xfce on the machine to get this working. Been running it for about 6 months this way without issue.

Thanks Eric, I'll have a look through this. This looks like it may be above my paygrade.

In the mean time, today I discovered using the -X flag when ssh'ing into the headless box where I want the iqfeed client running. Low and behold I can have the GUI part of iqfeed display on my local machine, but have it running on the server. That will do the trick for my needs for the time being.
