  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

IQFeed and Matlab

Has anyone used the IQFeed portion of the latest datafeed toolbox? If so, would you mind sharing some code on how you are pulling the real-time tick data?

I use that toolbox with IQFeed

however, i do not like it. I think it could have been implemented better.

I was not able to get more than 1 year of minute data fetched with the toolbox.
The next thing, I find it very hard to implement an automatic fetching function.

Having faced those flaws, I am thinking about to change either the datafeed or the API.
Changing the interface API seems right now the right way to go.

Therefore, I start to implement my interface to IQFeed on my own, which will use matlab server interface
to place the received data.
I do not want to start from scratch, therefore I will use a C# interface implemented by Sentinel .

It seems to work without having to purchase the API of IQfeed, maybe it does not handle realtime data.
Some say you need to purchase the API from IQFeed.
So I will see. First tests seem to be promising.

Hope that helped you a little bit.

Has anyone here used IQFeed historical data for Matlab? I wanted to get your thoughts on this. I figured this might be a plausible way to automate downloading tick data every month or so for backtesting.
