I currently download IQFeed US Futures Data using QCollector. However I was wondering whether it is possible to download the futures data so that is shows what the current front month is.

Not entirely sure that is the solution (I could be wrong..). Currently when I download data from IQFeed it looks like this:

Date Time Open High Low Close Volume
20201127 1145 1811.3 1812.4 1811 1812 721

However from Interactive Brokers it's possible to get this:

Date Time Open High Low Close Volume OpenInterest DeliveryMonth UnadjustedClose
20201127 1145 1811.3 1812.4 1811 1812 721 0 202102 1812


I'm wondering whether it would be possible to get the Delivery Month downloaded in the IQFeed data like it comes down in the IB data. The reason I ask is because IQFeed is better quality than IB. But I need the DeliveryMonth info to be able to run my trading software.
