Dear IQ Feed ,

I love your service and all but I think it is really lame to be paying 200 smackers a month and not be able to see the friggen data myself and play with it if i wish... I refuse to pay the developers fee because A. I am not a developer and B. on principle ... there is no reason for it unless someone is commercially using it in which case they would be in a different realm anyways ... I am spending a lot more time than I should trying to learn to have at the data I pay for...

Give us the instructions please....

Are you taking advantage of the CME fee waiver? Should be around $85 a month.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Thanks for the feedback. I believe we charge a fair price for the API service which includes dedicated support, access to Pre-Production servers and pre-release software to test changes before we roll them out. We also must manage the 3rd party software connecting to the service to ensure compliance and help protect all of our customers from a rogue 3rd party application interfering with the performance of our service. I understand the arguments of "but I already pay for the data", but the data service is priced at a level where we assume the support needs are lower because the work to implement the feed has already been done. Our fee structure is actually backwards from what you describe in that we often don't charge the API fee for commercial products who will be promoting our services to their customers. Overall, the $300 annual API fee isn't a profitable business as it just covers the costs of the dedicated support staff and some overhead. While many people tell us they don't need development support, we find that those who say this often become the most actively supported developers by our staff.

There are other ways to play with the data without paying the $300 fee, such as using Qcollector or 3rd party applications that include programming environments.

They need to change their program model and not require their application be running. I would like the option to be able to compile their code into an app (via a dll). The main reason they give for this, is allowing more than one program to attach, but that could be solved in a dll as well.

Could you elaborate on what you would be able to do with a .dll that you aren't able to do with the current IQFeed client? I am interested in learning what difficulties you have currently and how we can improve things.

Thanks

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to reply in this thread (and thanks Mike for starting it). I apologize for not seeing it earlier, but I will try to check back often as I am highly interested in learning how we can improve service. We are in the middle of a new development cycle where we are making some backend improvements, and your feedback will help drive our development efforts going forward.

Keep them coming!

This are my 2 concerns too. Develop a "Backtester Needs" product with accurate time-stamps and a larger backfill period. I would pay a higher price too get this done.

BTW, depending on how bad you want this, you can get it right now from nanex.net. Millisecond resolution and every single tick of every single product at multiple exchanges going back to 2004 I think. As you may know, Nanex is the framework that DTN is using. I think it's around $1000/mo.

Yes of course, IQFeed is only the little brother of nanex. I've recently worked on the file specs and was pretty impressed. They offer complete syncronized data at exchange level. But, for me, too much and too expensive. It were nice if there would be something between both solutions. And i'm looking only for historical tick data. The real data comes thru the well known retail feeds.
