I'll start.

I wish I could download more backfill during trading hours vs after hours.

And I wish they had more than 120 days of tick data. I guess I just want everything But really I couldn't think of much else to ask for.

Storage and bandwidth is relatively cheap, I hope they offer more than 120 days soon. It seems they've got the hard part figured out already, which is infrastructure and development.

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.

That is exactly what I was thinking as well Big Mike. More Bid/Ask data backfill days would be great. Other than that it has been reliable and accurate.

I wish they had data-feed backfills so I can have 90 days, 120 days, 240 days data on my charts.

I am not understanding. They have many years of minute data backfill, and 120 days of tick data backfill.

What do you mean?

Well if you use NinjaTrader that is already done, with Kinetick.

I contacted IQFeed on the backfill issue sometime early last year and I was told that I could have maximum of 120 days of backfill ONLY at the close of market; which is my 10:00PM (GMT+1), but I always had maximum of 30 days even at the close of market.

P.S. It is after market hour right now, and I just inquisitively attempted to do a Weekly chart with 6 months backfill (see attached screenshot), and it looks OK ... Is this a new feature of IQFeed feed with effect from Jan 2012 ? I never had been able to achieve this all this while ... I expect the backfill to stay intact when the market opens.

Of course, then you are not using IQFeed (I know its the same data coming thru Ninja, but thats not IQ its Kinetick). I use IQFeed because I can connect multiple apps to the same feed, can not do with Kinetick (unless that has changed).

So, I was really talking about the app, while I think the other issue of the actual feed is pertinent to Kinetick.
