James, I just found out from a fellow trader that IQFeed offers a SAFEX datafeed. I wasn't aware of this but after some searching on your website, I was happy to find that he is correct: IQFeed - Safex

I am not currently an IQFeed customer but I see you offer a free trial. Is a free trial available for the SAFEX exchange, in particular the ALSI Index Future (ALJH15). I only ask to check if a trial is available for the smaller exchanges, not just the big ones.

Also, do your trials include historical data or only live?

Thanks, looking forward to hopefully giving your services a try.

@DarkPoolTrading, Thanks for the good questions. SAFEX is one of the exchanges that is offered as a free trial. You can access live data from the exchange for free as long as they offer a trial period as well, and almost all of them do.

For a Free IQFeed Trial - Start Here ----> https://www.iqfeed.net/bigmiketrading/index.cfm?displayaction=start

If you need some help registering or have any more questions feel free to contact me.

Thanks again

@IQFeed James,

I am trying to find the Markit CDX North American High Yield Index but am not having any luck. Can you tell me what symbol it is?

I'm actually trying to find any/all high yield credit default swaps, not having a great deal of success finding matches in IQFeed's symbol lookup. I did find TYTE (ETF) but it isn't exactly what I am looking for.

Mike

@Big Mike, Thanks for the question. We do not carry these Indexes at the moment, which appear to be proprietary.

We list one Markit Future, @WIG on ICE, but it has never traded and does not quote.

ICE has a link to once-a-day updates on some Markit indexes:

https://www.theice.com/cds/MarkitIndices.shtml

If you have any more questions let me know.

Thanks

James I would like to ask you what does the $ means in the symbols.
For example, what's the difference between these two?
DINT.Z NYSE ISSUES $ VOL TOTAL and VINT.Z NYSE ISSUES VOLUME TOTAL

Thanks.

@rhuz - Thanks for your question.

$ = “Dollar volume” multiplies the volume of a stock times its share price.

“Volume” is not influenced by the share price of the stock.

I hope this helps.

@IQFeed James, can you help me locate these two symbols with IQFeed please

https://us.spindices.com/indices/strategy/sp-500-high-beta-index

https://us.spindices.com/indices/strategy/sp-500-low-volatility-index

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)

@Big Mike, thanks for the question.

Here are the IQFeed symbols below, and a few links to our symbol guide and symbol look up tool which always comes in handy in case anyone ever needs to look up symbols on the fly or other information such as trading hours, u.s. economic calendar, holiday schedule and more.

SP500HBETA.X
SP500LVOL.X

IQFeed being blocked by ISP?

I have a problem with my feed not working today locally (Italy). As a test, I started IQ Feed on my VPS in London and that is working fine. I had no problem a couple of days ago connecting from Malta so this issue seems to be from this particular ISP. Has anyone else ever had something similar happen?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the client and changed my local DNS to see that would make a difference. There is no real problem with the connection as I can RDP into the Windows 2012 R2 server with no problems.

When I run the IQFeed Diagnostics Utility it gets to a certain point and then seems to freeze.

I would love to hear any opinions on what might be happening.

Dear James


Hi
i trade stock only - day trading and scalping.
i have broker feed IB interactice brokers and also Trademonster-optionhouse and MBtrading.
i also have your feed as i used before bid-ask software which need your feed.

i know from reading that IB feed is not great for HFT trading and they dont give all ticks-data
could you tell me more how much this (using IB feed in my softwares) could affect my order-flow-bid-ask traidng data. i dont make mili-seconds trades, but i also dont use 5 minutes charts.

could you tell something about MBtrading feed or Trademonster (now optionHouse)?

i know that IQfeed is top feed but its also expensive for me.
i now got the idea that i can get discount as Big mike trading Elite member. but i am not new costumer to you feed (have account). could you help me by this.

thanks
sharoni
