aside from what have already mentioned by you, it would obviously be KRX

they host one of most liquid contracts for index (kospi 200), bond (KTB 10 year and 3 year), and currency (USD/KRW) futures contracts in asia.

just a heads up, once the Chinese bourse open the gate for foreign investors i would expect them to be CME equivalent of asia.

Thanks Harlequin! Please provide your IQFeed Username and we'll get your requests recorded.

Just to clarify, please email or PM Robert, don't post your IQFeed account # or username on futures.io (formerly BMT).

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.

Question


@Robert Carrillo ,

Can you explain (in newbie terms please - I'm only asking out of curiosity) why my TICK (JTNT.Z) data starts right at the ES market open but it takes about 1 minute for the S&P Net Issues (JI6T.Z) to begin?

Thanks,

-AT

Hi AT,

Great question, I had to research it.

When we started calculating stats 20+ years ago we configured any that are ratios (TRIN, etc) and those requiring data from multiple exchanges (S&P, Dow, etc) to display at 9:31 EST to allow time for stocks on those exchanges to trade.

Now we both know!

Robert

Hi Robert,

I've just downloaded the newest version of IQ (5.0.13?)

There is something called Link Launcher, which I assume is some Excel tool as it launches a big red DDE app in the start bar.

Can you provide a link to a manual or online description of how to use this - I cant see anything on the IQfeed website. It would be pretty useful if I could download quotes directly into Excel.

Thanks,

D

Hi TheDude,

Click here for a tutorial on DDE Link. If you use Excel regularly, consider a software designed to move IQFeed into Excel efficiently and with more functionality, such as QuoteIN or QCollector.

By the way, we have released IQFeed ver 5.0.0.14 which fixes an issue for SC users of all pre/post market quotes showing 4:00 timestamp.

Robert

It was also covered pretty extensively in the last futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar.

IQFeed T&S Volume

@Robert Carrillo,

I have started an IQFeed free trial last week and I have been testing it.

My broker is IB and I am currently using Sierra Chart.

Up to now I am finding IQFeed very good. It is notorious the difference of speed on the tape and the accuracy on the charts.

However, there is something very strange when comparing Time & Sales data with both data feeds (IB and IQ T&S windows) side by side: there are no high volume trades registered with IQFeed.

For example on CL, with IQFeed the individual trade volume is very low – very rarely more than 20, 30 contracts – while with IB data feed we can observe very often trades with hundreds, even thousands of contracts.

Could you please explain the reason for that?

Thanks.

IQFeed T&S Volume

Sorry, for some reason I duplicated the previous message.

Thanks Rui S. Are you seeing this just with CL or with other data as well?

Please PM me with your IQFeed Username so we can investigate.

Robert
