Do you see the possibility to deliver access to data like the "stop orderbook" or infos at which prices who (marketmakers and institutions) are asking or offering size as "add-on" for your existing services? Or are those infos an industry secret?

No, I donít see the possibility to provide stop orderbook.

The NASDAQ Level 2 data does provide the market makersí best bid and ask price and size. However the full size of all orders by a market maker is not provided in Level 2.

Thanks.

Robert

Hi Harlequin,

There hasn't been much demand for OSE that I'm aware of, but it starts with individual requests. Please email robert.carrillo@dtn.com and ask that IQFeed provide it. Please ask others who also want IQFeed to offer OSE to email me as well.

Regards,

Robert

Robert,

quantitatively speaking, how much demands would you deem enough to offer connection to new exchanges?

also, I would suggest to add something like "new exchanges petition/vote" on IQFeed site where you can also capture potential clients contacts to be noted when their product of interest has any update.

here's some of the leading asia-pacific exchanges we would like to be added:
HKFE, OSE, KRX

A couple hundred would likely be enough to justify the cost. I like your idea of an exchange wish list on the IQFeed site. We have that now in the DTN forum: IQFeed Datafeed Wish List

I received an email on Mar 5 from a Joseph requesting those exchanges. Is that you?

Thanks.

Robert

Robert,

thanks for listening to your customers. it means very much for us. especially the KRX/KSE is a bit tricky to handle because i believe their license is pretty expensive.

regarding the wish list i believe using lead generation (like aweber.com / getresponse.com) is easier for you to handle and track how many have been actually voting for each exchanges. also non forum users will be eager to vote for their opinion without having to register first which would make leads conversion higher. i can also help spreading the words easier by pointing to an exact lead generation page rather than having someone to register to the forum first.

and no i'm not Joseph but i will send email to you asap regarding the new exchanges.
i opened a new thread about the asia pacific exchanges here if you have anything to add please participate as well

thanks and have a good day!

I can't believe this really. Retail trading is an enormous market in Asia, especially in Hong Kong. And you need a hundred people on futures.io (formerly BMT) to make a business case for this! Ok......

Hi syxforex,

It costs a minimum of $10,000/mo to add a new exchange. So, yes, we need to know we'll have a subscriber base for the exchange before we invest in it. They don't have to be futures.io (formerly BMT) members.

Robert

Robert, why is your basic service for US futures data 88$ per month while Kinetick offers the identical product under their brand name for only 50$? Would you consider matching Kinetick's prices for Ninjatrader users?

Thanks

It is not identical.

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

syxforex,

Kinetick is the best retail data feed in the industry, IMHO, but can be used ONLY with NT, does not provide data for ICE (TF, DX.X, etc), intraday historical is limited to 2 years according to their website (IQFeed back to May 2007 for stocks/futures/indexes and back to Sept 2005 for minis), does not offer an API for development, and Kinetick Support is limited to email during normal business hours (IQFeed has Live Support Chat, toll-free phone support and 24 hrs/day email Support M-F...critical for customers outside U.S.). Finally, while Kinetick subscribers can view news in NT, IQFeed subscribers can use data in NT but still have access to IQFeed News Client at no additional charge, which some consider a more intuitive news interface.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards,

Robert
