Hi @Robert Carrillo

NYSE Composite (NYA.X) accordingly to NYSE site, yesterday (06/03) traded 2,383,202,000 shares.

Can you tell me if IQFeed's VINT.Z (NYSE ISSUES VOLUME TOTAL) symbol is the equivalent of the NYA volume?
For yesterday, VINT.Z shows a volume of 445,520.

If VINT.Z is not the NYA equivalent volume, can you tell me which symbol is?

Regards.

Hi arnie,

Sorry for the delay in replying, I've been out of pocket.

I think what you're looking for is VI7T.Z (NYA COMPOSITE ISSUES VOLUME TOTAL). It is in 1000's, so add 3 zeroes.

Thanks.

Robert

Is it possible that maybe you could list possible causes for loss of data so that we may better understand how these things happen. I have a similar thing happening with my Kinetick feed for the ES 06-14 contract daily volume. When I called I verified that it was not my machine as my Kinetick technical support rep had the exact same number for Daily Volume as I did. The problem is that this was off considerably from the CME provided numbers which closely matched TD Ameritrade volume. (Didn't do a screen capture of TD Ameritrade volume as I thought Kinetick numbers were better until yesterday.)
Screen capture is from today 6/11/2014

@Robert Carrillo, on a related note, for @ES#C I am showing 874K total today, and CME shows over 1M. Rollover is tomorrow so don't know if it's related, but it's not right I think.

Volume Questions

Thank you for the posts on futures.io (formerly BMT). I see a few volume questions on this thread. If there are specific questions we would be happy to help address these.
Feel free to contact us at support@iqfeed.net or 800.779.7299; 402.255.8787 and our customer service teams will help you.
IQFeed provides trade volume and cumulative volume updates with each trade message. The CME website referenced provides volume 10 min delayed but includes option volume for the contract as well. There could be a discrepancy in a comparison versus realtime data or delayed if the volume is for the futures.
The breakout of options vs futures is also available on cmegroup.com for daily volume.
I posted a picture of IQFeed daily volume using DTNiq Time and Sales versus the website voume and yesterday's volume if you wanted to review.
Please feel free to contact us for support if you need it.
Thank you
Mike

@DTN IQFeed / @IQFeed James, you have the VRCT.Z symbol, which is the CBOE total put/call ratio. You also have a VRET.Z, which is equity p/c but it includes indexes. You do not seem to have equity only P/C ratio, which is really the one that most people would need. Am I right or do you offer it? Unfortunately it cannot be computed using the two you offer. The data is right here on CBOE, which is why I'm surprised you don't have it (under "Current," it is the third item):

CBOE - Put/Call Ratios
