If you're don't super accurate/unfiltered tick data you should use IB. Just be sure your account is hosted in Zug Switzerland and not somewhere else. You can't use IB for large historical data but if you already have the data with IQFeed...

AFAIK people from EU are hosted in Switzerland or maybe London. Recently I called them on the phone regarding PRIIP and according to that accounts from residents from the EU are definitely treated different to accounts from the US, so must be the account. But I wonder if there's a difference when it comes to the data, when reading the quote above.

For my combination of IB and MC I can say the tickdata is something like 1 second data. I'd think this is due to the known kind of tickdata from IB. For using many years of historical data it doesn't matter whether IB is used or not, MC is dealing with the data and there is no real limit.
