I guess it is not affecting your trading business then, because it it was, as with any business there should be BC plans and you should have dropped it already the moment it became unreliable... I use IQFeed because for what we can afford is reliable... I rather pay $1.2K/year for IQF than pay $20K+/year for an extremely reliable data feed (i.e. Bloomberg, CQG, etc)

Kinetick connects directly into IQFeed servers, they are Kinetick's technology provider. If IQFeed service is up, Kinetick is up, if IQFeed is down, Kinetick is down. We had over 700 unique connections through Kinetick without incident yesterday.
I looked at MetalTrades images and its clear that for some reason, his PC was unable to establish a connection to the IQFeed server farm as well as Telvent server to validate his CME waiver (independent connection from the ticker plant) my point being, there was a problem between his ISP and IQFeed servers that prevented a connection.

In this case one can find out by writing down the IP-adresses of the access points and ping them.
I have had a similar issue with my broker, when one of the transatlantic cables was down. Actually the transmission stopped in Antwerp. i have then shifted my access point to the Broker from the US to Switzerland, now connecting into a Swiss server for order execution and most of the data feeds.
Since last post was from January I wanted to see if this thread is quiet because Kinetic customers are happy or moved on? Anyone using Kinetic who used to use DTN/IQ? Is it really the same? Specifically is the bid/ask data just as reliable?
DTN and Kinetic are the same thing. It's 6 months that I am using kinetics and I most say that I am very happy, there was a problem for 4 hours about 4 months ago and apart that nothing else so to be a new company it's really fine

I've seen it mentioned several places, including on this forum that Kinetick daily Closing prices are Settlement prices. However here is a response I just received from Kinetick Customer Support regarding this:
"Thank you for your note.
The EOD data is closing price. The EOD is the max high, max low, the open price, and the closing price at 4:15PM EST.
This is not necessarily the exchange settlement price.
Please let me know if you need further clarification.
What is the user experience out there, are they reporting settlement prices or not?
