How can I get iqfeeds market stats into ninjatrader as a chart when there is no exchange listed because it is data calculated by iqfeed and not an exchange?

Just wanted to take a minute to say "THANKS!" to IQFeed's Robert Carrillo, Jay Froscheiser and IQFeed Dev Support Tim Walter.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to replace my retail trading platform with my own "platform" that I would build from scratch using R. Everything has gone exceedingly well, and the IQFeed API has made the process very smooth.

I wrote a blurb on what I am doing here:

And you can also find info in the main MySQL tick db thread.

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.

I usually have praise for IQFeed, but there is one problem I ran into with your API. You don't provide an adjusted price that accounts for splits and dividends, nor do you supply the necessary data for me to adjust it on my side.

So I have to go externally for this data, such as Yahoo. In R there is the package quantmod which supports retrieving dividends and splits from Yahoo using the getDividends() and getSplits() functions, hopefully it helps someone else who runs into this issue.

Using that approach, I am able to store the dividend and split dates in my database.

 
Code
> quantmod:::getSplits("AAPL")
           AAPL.spl
1987-06-16      0.5
2000-06-21      0.5
2005-02-28      0.5
 
Code
> quantmod:::getDividends("AAPL")

Hello Robert,

There is a lot of fuss going on now about the CME fees and it got me thinking.

Currently you , like most of your customers and re-branders, are focused on US markets. There are some traders that focus on markets other than those main ones and that that love your service but end up paying over the top because the international markets come as an exceptional bundle on top of your basic service.

Do you see a way to say offer something like a "Eurex" only package or even something specific to one exchange only ?

We are discussing this over here too , but I thought I would bring the water to the well.

I am speaking here of a pure data feed service and nothing bundled to a broker or any of that stuff.

regards

Hi podski,

I've been watching that thread and thinking about your situation. It looks like you're currently using Kinetick for EUREX? Is that $50/mo for Basic + $25/mo for Intl Futures + EUREX exch fee?

Robert

  • Market Depth
  • Kinetick Basic Service 1
  • Eurex Non Pro Exchange Fee 1
  • Eurex Level 2 Non Pro
  • RT Int'l Exchange Entitlement

Total $135.00 USD

Please believe me I'm not trying to save 5 of your American Dollars here ... just wondering if strategically for European or Asian focused customers you could get rid of some stuff ..

Well, I will save you 17 American Dollars right off the bat. Contact Kinetick and tell them to cancel the EUREX Level 1 exchange. The 23 USD EUREX Level 2 feed includes Level 1, so you don't need both.

I like the idea of having a lower cost bundled feed with only EUREX, the challenge being that there must be a base service it can attach to. IQFeed Core Service/Kinetick Basic is a fat feed since it includes so much (real-time stocks, real time indexes/indicators, streaming news, delayed US and Intl futures, tons of historical data, etc). I don't know if we could eliminate enough of that from a bundled EUREX feed to make it desirable or cost effective, but it's worth giving some thought to.
