Here's what I have on another data feed. The earnings, dividend yields, balance sheet dates, and institutional ownership information are drastically different. e.g. MSFT 9% institutional ownership.

Thanks artemiso, I'm investigating this.

Robert

Correction: I was confused between fundamentals and stats. We get our fundamentals from Morningstar, and we're investigating why the data is so different.

@artemiso

I'm told we had another inquiry today about "% held" field, so we are in communication with Morningstar to determine cause and resolution.

Nanex and non-windows support

Hi Robert,

I had two questions:

1 - Do you have any incentive to add a unix/linux version of the windows iqconnect.exe listener sometime in the future? My reasoning is that there are much better servers available without requiring a windows server OS, so this would be a nice feature.

2 - Who's the best person to talk to in order to get a ballpark of pricing for Nanex? I had reached out a few times to Jerry Chandler over email and heard back once but then email responses stopped. I'm interested in understanding my options and the base costs from an individuals perspective. If pricing is catered to person specific, I'm fine signing an NDA to not disclose pricing options to others.

Thanks in advance for the help and taking the time to do ama.

Dylan

Hi Dylan,

We have dozens of developers writing to LINUX using WINE with no issues, so there isn't an urgency to offer a native client for LINUX. We are considering a cross-platform version of IQFeed for LINUX and Mac but it's way down on the list.

Jerry is the best person to visit with regarding NxCore/Nanex. His number is 800-511-0096, ext 8229 if you'd like to call him.

Thanks.

Robert

Morningstar reports that it has fixed the problem with "% held" field. Let me know if you're still having issues.

Hello,

I am looking for a data feed in order to make some backtesting with R. I am wondering if I can use IQ Feed with R, preferably call it from within quantmod?

Will it work in real time or only for historical prices?

Thanks in advance

Hi Yakito,

In theory you should be able to use IQFeed with either. I am not familiar with Quantmod (looks like a quant trading modeler plugin for R), but we do have customers using R with IQFeed.

With IQFeed's API you get everything.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
