hi

Can I interest you in creating the Excel spreadsheet to create a similar chart as what I posted but with more historical data and easier to read overlay?





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.

I might be able to get @vvhg to do it, he is Excel master, but not sure he uses IQFeed (if he doesn't he should!).

I use Kinetick, not sure if they support that...I could maybe have a look at the excel stuff over the weekend.

Does anyone know if Kinetick and IQFeed are truly identical in terms of market data?

Kinetick is the less expensive version of IQFeed that works only with NinjaTrader and has most but not all the features.

Data comes from same source (IQFeed)

In the webinar today it was mentioned IQFeed has COT elements data available for charting etc. Can you remind me the symbols? Does IQFeed have a sample Excel spreadsheet that would re-create something like this:

I would like to have more historical data on screen and a more clear overlay (this one is somewhat hard to read). It seems like all of this data is available with IQFeed, I just need to use Excel to get at it.

Also, I am a bit unclear (should have asked in the webinar). Is the Excel DDE functionality available to all IQFeed clients, or only if you subscribe to the API?

Mike

Hi Mike,

DDE functionality is available to all IQFeed users. Open IQLink Launcher like so (notice Sample DDE Spreadsheet there as well):

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


The DDE interface directly supported with IQFeed provides streaming data on a symbol basis only. We don't include an interface for T&S, chains, etc. If you want more advanced functionality feeding data into Excel, I would suggest looking at XLQ or QuoteIN (3rd party apps) as they both provide a more efficient feed from IQFeed into Excel as well as advanced functionality and formulas.

While Kinetick subscribers are receiving IQFeed data, they do not have IQLink Launcher since they haven't installed IQFeed Client (yet another difference between the services).

Glad you like it! That functionality isn't new. It's been there since inception.

Have you heard an alert from PR Newswire yet? If you have it set to announce the source of the story, it says, "Puerto Rico Newswire"!

HAHA!

I'm just playing with it at the mo - deciding which newswires to listen too. Im not so interested in stocks - more macro issues, commodities and fixed income.

I havent upgraded to v5.0 Beta yet, so Im on the old version. I wish I knew about this earlier - its a great selling point for you.

Im half way through the seminar recording, wondering what other stuff there is that Ive totally disregarded over the last 5-6 years or so!

Good work!
